Foundation Announce Four New Ambassadors!

The Hibernian Community Foundation is delighted to announce four brand-new Ambassadors that are prominent in Edinburgh and the wider community.


Over the last few months, ‘Sir’ David Gray, Dougray Scott, Grant Stott, and Irvine Welsh have all shown their support for the Foundation, pledging to back their work as HCF continues to make positive strides in the local area.


A man who needs no introduction, David Gray, is a big supporter of the Community Foundation and has been ever since he joined the Club.


“I’ve been at Hibs for nine great years and the transformation in Our Club’s Charity, the Hibernian Community Foundation, in that time has been remarkable,” Gray said.


“I’ve seen at first hand the great work they do supporting the local area and those most in need. I was honoured to be asked to be an ambassador and am really looking forward to supporting them and getting involved.”


Emmy and BAFTA winning Scottish actor and producer Dougray Scott, added: “I’ve been a lifelong Hibee and have always been proud of our Club for many reasons.


“The work that Our Club and Our Charity, the Hibernian Community Foundation, is doing is just great and I’m happy to support it in any way I can. Another great reason to be a proud Hibee.”


Grant Stott is a Hibee through and through, when he isn’t supporting his beloved team, at Easter Road with his Dad, he is an award winning Radio and TV Presenter, Event Host, Voice Over, Actor and regular King’s Theatre Edinburgh Panto Villain!


“I have followed the Hibs since I was a child and am as proud of Our Club as I am of our city,” he admitted.


“That pride has grown with being asked to be an Ambassador for Our Charity, the Hibernian Community Foundation. They do brilliant work in North Edinburgh and beyond and I like many other Hibees give them my full support!”


Lastly, Irvine Welsh was born and raised in Edinburgh and his first novel, Trainspotting, has sold over one million copies in the UK and was adapted into an era-defining film. Alongside this, he’s a huge supporter of Hibs and the work HCF do in the community.


“Leith and Hibs are in my DNA and I love them both. Our Club is at the centre of the community and Our Charity does a fabulous job supporting people who need help. I am a proud to be an Ambassador for Hibernian Community.”
