We are delighted to announce that Rory Crawford is joining Children’s Health Scotland as a charity Ambassador! Rory has been a big part of CHS for a while and we are huge fans of the wonderful renditions of children’s stories that he reads for us.
Earlier this year we caught up with Rory to find out a little bit more about him:
I’m a dad to a wee boy and girl. I’m a marine biologist by training, but have done lots of jobs…was a paperboy, made pizzas, worked in a shop, an aquarium, on nature reserves. Now I work with teams all over the world to try and stop seabirds being accidentally caught by fishing boats – from the eastern Baltic to Namibia and Chile to Iceland.
In addition to the important work that Rory does for wildlife and the environment, he is also known for his role as a children’s television presenter on Cbeebies!
To celebrate Rory’s new role, we thought it was only fitting for him to read a great children’s story for all of our followers on social media – and since it is Halloween season we chose ‘Trixie the Witch’s Cat’ by Nick Butterworth. This is a fantastic story with an important message that we should all be proud of our differences as it is what makes us special. This reading will go live on our website and Facebook page on Friday 30th October 2020, so make sure you’re following us!
