November 2015

Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) marked St Andrew's day by unveiling its very own tartan, with scarves woven and donated by The House of Edgar, and designed by Brian Wilton MBE.

Brian Wilton, on behalf of the Scottish tartans Authority which donated the design work, said,
"I've based the tartan's sett on that of the Bruce family, who's most famous forebear Robert, was crowned King of Scotland in 1306 at Scone Palace, less than a mile from the SCAA's base here at the airport. " He continued, "The colours are based on those of the Saltire, the Red Cross, and SCAA's own corporate colours which are green and black."

Representing The House of Edgar at the launch was Managing Director Blair Macnaughton, who expressed the Company's pleasure to be associated with such a worthy cause.
"This tartan is very attractive, " he said, "and we are delighted to be the first to bring Brian's design to life. We're delighted to donate these scarves to help boost SCAA's fundraising efforts and would wish them well in their very important work."

SCAA Chief Executive David Craig told the assembled guests that the charity is now in its third year of operation and had responded to nearly 900 emergency call-outs during this period. "We're proud to have our own tartan, " he said, "and we have ensured that it is now featured on the tail of our newly delivered helicopter. Thanks to both The House of Edgar and the Scottish Tartans Authority, for making this possible."
