Quotes on the campaign:

Paul Carberry, Director for Service Development, Action for Children Scotland;

‘Not sure if you heard about Jordan’s latest news. Our media guy Craig fixed him up a meeting with BBC Social. They have offered Jordan paid work presenting Online programmes on cooking and will train him as a presenter with a view to presenting BBC television programmes. There is a god!!! That in itself is some outcome for SG on Inch by Inch. At this rate you should be going for campaign of the year (Seriously)’

Cyrus Todiwala, BBC Presenter and Restaurateur

A Programme such as this ought to go UK Wide and I hope it does just that. I have signed up and will also post these from our channels to a wider audience.Hopefully it will be a massive success. Good luck and wish you all the very best!

Cleland Sneddon, CEO Argyle & Bute Council

The Rothesay Roadshow was a fantastic example of how a school can take on the core message of the campaign and utilise these messages within the school curriculum. I'm going to taking part in some of these challenges and so is our Senior Management Team so watch out for future blogs and vlogs showing how we are getting on with those.
