BAFTA winning film producer Trevor Beattie has become the latest ambassador of veterans’ charity, Erskine.
Trevor, 61, who is the brains behind some of the UK’s most iconic adverts and who produced the BAFTA winning movie Moon, became a long-time supporter of the charity as a result of his passion for aviation and wartime flight.
Trevor said: “When it comes to helping our veterans, I don’t need to be asked twice. I am in awe of the work carried out by the tireless staff at Erskine homes across Scotland and I am truly honoured to have been offered this opportunity to become an ambassador for the charity.”
Wing Commander Ian Cumming MBE, Erskine Chief Executive, said: “I have known Trevor Beattie since his passion for aviation introduced us to one another whilst I was in the RAF Regiment. I am delighted that our paths have crossed once again as we work together to represent Erskine and fight the corner of Veterans young and old.
“Trevor’s talent and extensive network throughout the globe can be a real asset to the charity and we are both looking forward to him telling the story of Erskine not just here in the UK, but the world over.”
Trevor is no stranger to supporting veterans, having established the Jack and Ada Beattie Foundation in 2011. As part of its wider work, the charity funds an annual pilgrimage to the Beaches of Normandy for heroes and D-Day Veterans.
He added: “I have seen first-hand the bravery of our nation’s veterans. The Erskine Veterans have fought their battles for this country, and it is now time for us all to step up to the plate and represent them.”
