Scottish rural charity RSABI has recruited rugby star Alex Dunbar as its first official ambassador.
The charity, which provides financial assistance to those who have relied on the land in Scotland, has recruited the 24-year-old rugby star to help sign up more people for its supporters scheme. The supporters scheme allows people to contribute to the charity on an annual basis.
Mr Dunbar, who plays for Glasgow Warriors and the Scottish international squad, is originally from a farming family near Lockerbie.
With the RBS 6 Nations tournament kicking off tonight, the young rugby star has offered up a prize of two tickets to the Scotland v Ireland match on March 21 and the chance to have lunch with him in the run-up to the game. Everyone who signs up to become a supporter between now and March 13 will be entered into a prize draw to win the tickets and lunch.
Membership of the scheme is available in three tiers – individual supporters must pay a minimum of £25 a year, business supporters a minimum of £150 a year and corporate supporters a minimum of £500 a year. “I’m really pleased to be involved with RSABI as it allows me to give something back to the farming community,” said Mr Dunbar.
