Our Original Patron

Scottish Broadcaster Grant Stott currently works as a DJ on Edinburgh’s 97.3 Forth One radio station and a regular panto villain.

One of the best and most well-known voices on the radio Grant has also hosted several BBC Radio Scotland shows including The Fred MacAulay Show, Off The Ball, Daddy or Chips, Mummy or Chips and Soundcheck.

Edinburgh’s number one Hibernian fan, Grant manages to combine business with pleasure for his beloved club as their corporate match-day host.

Grant is also well-known to television viewers for his work on Scotland Today, Sportscene, The Hour and Children in Need.

An award winner for his charity work, Grant has supported SiMBA since 2006 and has attended many SiMBA events since then.

In May 2012 it was a great honour to announce Grant as our first Patron and his enthusiasm and commitment to SiMBA is invaluable.

No task is too big or small for our dedicated Patron.

Grant says:

“It’s a great thrill to be even just a small part of the fabulous work SiMBA does.  Although I haven’t personally suffered in the way that many parents who SiMBA helps have done, I was immediately taken by the simple but yet hugely effective work the team from SiMBA do; from the memory boxes to the trees of tranquillity. I am more than happy to help out the brilliant team from SiMBA however and whenever I can. It would be great if you could too.”
