Celebrity endorsement of NDCS’s acoustics campaign

Posted by Ian Noon on June 12, 2009

In a quiet moment in the office many months back, I was daydreaming about how great it would be if we could get Kevin McCloud, design expert from the Grand Designs programme off the telly, to give us a celebrity endorsement for our campaign on acoustics in new school buildings and speak a bit about schools need to be designed so they sound good.

A few weeks back, I was given an unexpected opportunity to ask if this might be possible when I went along for a catch up meeting with a Channel 4 disability advisor. I though it would be a long short, but gave it a try and mentioned it anyway.

Well, it turns out that if you ask, you may well get. Kevin’s agent sent us over a quote giving his support for the campaign. Wowzers. The quote is now helping us get lots more coverage of our campaign around the UK. It’s a bit of celebrity stardust but hopefully it will will help us grab and keep the Government’s attention until we have persuaded them of the need for urgent action.
