“Patrick is the epitome of a sporting role model. Patrick delivered various healthy lifestyle messages in some of the most deprived urban areas in Europe and feedback has indicated that those messages have stuck and are making a difference. His enthusiasm and professionalism with the children was always evident and ensured that his brief time in their company made a difference. He positively influenced the lives of over 11,000 young people across Scotland.”

~ Andy Arbuckle

“Patrick is a great ambassador for the sport. He always made time for the pupils, answering questions, signing autographs and teaching them not only about important health messages,  but also reinforcing that they can achieve anything in life if they set their mind to it and follow their dream. Patrick is an inspiration to everyone he works with and an exemplary role model who everyone looked up to (not just literally).  Through his passion for motivating and inspiring others during the course of his year in Scotland he changed the lives of so many young people throughout the Nation”
