Good luck from Brian Cox!

I was Grand Marshall of the NY Tartan Day Parade this year and was happy to accept. As Scots-born but now living in New York, the aims of the Committee and its Parade dovetail nicely with my own situation. The Parade is not just an opportunity for Scots and Scots-Americans to celebrate their heritage as they march up Sixth Avenue. It brings together groups from New York and contemporary Scotland to get their messages across as widely as possible. For example, the Scottish-based charity of which I am an Ambassador, Developing World Health, was able to use Tartan Week to launch its presence in New York and America.
I wish the Committee, all volunteers by the way, the best of luck in the future as they launch their new website.
Yours aye,
Brian Cox
