Hyslop Supports St Andrews Day Kindness Campaign

Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop is supporting the #BeLikeStAndrew campaign to mark the start of our Winter Festivals.

The #BeLikeStAndrew campaign is asking members of the public to do a good deed on St Andrew’s Day to celebrate Scotland’s history, culture and the nation’s shared values. Charity partners Princes Trust Scotland, Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland, Crisis Scotland, have joined the Scottish Rugby Union and Stoats to back the campaign.

Fiona commented:

“Our Winter Festivals always kick off on St Andrews Day with a variety of events locally and across Scotland.

“St Andrew is Scotland’s patron saint and was known for being strong, sociable and fair, encouraging people to share what they had with those in need. I am happy to support the ‘Be Like St Andrew Campaign’ and would urge constituents to come together and help others within the community, particularly at this time of year when older or more vulnerable people may find the cold weather a challenge.”
