Our founder and MD and Andrew is not shy. And it could be said he has the gift of the gab with a pinch of vision and drizzled with confidence. So it should come as no surprise that when he found himself sitting opposite Alastair Darling, he saw an opportunity.
Grabbing his ‘phone, Andrew asked the former MP and Chancellor of the Exchequer if he could record a plea in support of his fundraising efforts for HIT Scotland by walking the Great Wall of China. And he agreed! Andrew then took every chance he could to gain celebrity endorsement, including from DJ Des Clark, actor Grant Stott, chefs Theo Randall and Aldo Zilli, Weathergirl Judith ralston and even National Grand Winner “One for Arthur”.
The video has gone viral with over 5,000 views over the various sites where it has been posted, and the story has even captured the imagination of the national press, being picked up by The Sunday Post!
