Minister for Europe, Migration and International Development Ben Macpherson, said:

“This St Andrew’s Day presents a positive, inspiring opportunity for all of Scotland, in all our diversity, to celebrate the inclusive, outward-looking and compassionate spirit of our nation – by helping others and by showing generosity and kindness.

“Whether it’s on St Andrew’s Day or St Andrew’s Fair Saturday, this year we can all show the best of what it means to be Scottish by each of us doing something small to #MakeSomeonesDay. If each of us does something kind for another, together we can make a big, positive impact for the benefit of the whole of Scotland.

“For St Andrew’s Day this year, I would encourage everyone to do something kind to #MakeSomeonesDay, join the numerous events that are taking place across Scotland, and enjoy celebrating the inclusive, outward-looking, compassionate spirit of our nation in all of its diversity.”
