The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

The head of ma­jor out­door equip­ment com­pany Tiso has been named as an am­bas­sador for a Perthshire char­ity.

Chris Tiso will rep­re­sent Blair­gowrie-based Coun­try­side Learn­ing Scot­land (CLS).

The ap­point­ment un­der­lines his com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions that share his in­ter­est in the great out­doors.

CLS works with lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, teach­ers, out­door learn­ing pro­fes­sion­als and ru­ral in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tive to give stu­dents and com­mu­nity groups the op­por­tu­nity to learn about Scot­land’s ru­ral econ­omy.

This in­cludes fa­cil­i­tat­ing talks with ru­ral in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als such as farm­ers, game­keep­ers and foresters to ar­rang­ing ‘coun­try­side vis­its’ to work­ing farms, estates and ru­ral busi­nesses.

Mr Tiso, who is also honorary pres­i­dent of Scouts Scot­land, said: “I feel very proud to be asked by Coun­try­side Learn­ing Scot­land to be its first am­bas­sador and to help fur­ther raise aware­ness of its work in giv­ing young peo­ple hands-on learn­ing, train­ing and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the ar­eas of land-use and ru­ral in­dus­try.”

Ian Robert­son of CLS said: “As the head of Scot­land’s lead­ing out­door re­tailer, Chris is widely recog­nised in Scot­land’s busi­ness and out­door com­mu­nity. He shares our pas­sion for giv­ing young peo­ple ev­ery chance to de­velop their ap­pre­ci­a­tion, knowl­edge and skills in ru­ral-based ac­tiv­i­ties.”
