Media Release: Scottish celebrities support Scots in London in poverty for Burns Day

SCOTTISH celebrities have come out in support of Scots living in poverty in London to mark Burns Day on the 25th of January.

Actors, Alan Cumming, Billy Boyd and Dawn Steele are supporting ScotsCare, the charity for Scots in London, which is raising money for Scots in poverty through sales of a limited edition, biodegradable bag which is available for £9.99 through their website

Dawn Steele has taken time out of her filming schedule for Wild at Heart in South Africa to be photographed for ScotsCare along with Lord of the Rings star, Billy Boyd, and Alan Cumming, star of X-Men.

ScotsCare works with first and second-generation Scots in London who are in need, hardship and distress. All of the money raised through sales of the jute tote bag will go directly towards supporting vulnerable Scots in London.

ScotsCare’s chief executive, Willie Docherty, said: “At a time when we are celebrating one of our greatest ambassadors in Rabbie Burns, it’s fitting that our current ambassadors for Scotland are willing to take the time to support our less fortunate Scots in London.”
