Campaign: To challenge regional stereotypes

I grew up in Fallin, a former pit village in Stirling, Scotland.

 

Unfortunately it has developed a reputation for being rough over the years, which is quite hurtful because I consider it my home.

 

Regional stereotypes like these exist in many communities. If you come from a nice area you’re automatically seen as being “posh”.

 

It’s my view that we should try to see an individual for who they are and not where they’re from.

 

I hope my Fixers campaign can go some way towards changing these attitudes.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Raj Thandi

Finlay Gibson

Adam Davidson
