A CUPAR man who has made an outstanding contribution to Macmillan Cancer Support has been presented with the organisation’s most prestigious award.

Giff Bradley was presented with the Douglas Macmillan Award - named after the charity’s founder - at an event held at Stirling University recently.

Over the years Giff has given an unprecedented 62 talks for Macmillan, not just in Fife but across Scotland, and his enthusiasm has inspired many people to get involved in fundraising.

He also takes speakers’ courses and has helped many people follow in his own footsteps in spreading the word about how Macmillan can help people living with cancer and their families, in many different ways.

Macmillan’s fundraising manager for Fife and Forth Valley April Davidson nominated Giff for the award.

She said: “He is the most revered and experienced speaker not just in Fife but across Scotland. He has made a tremendous contribution to Macmillan taking his talks into schools and commnity groups and we are so grateful to him.

“Giff has a great way with people and he has been an excellent mentor to others and we are delighted to be able to give him this award in recognition of all that he has done.”
