Programme Director shortlisted for national award

Gary Miles, Programme Director, Executive Education has been shortlisted for a national award in recognition for his volunteer work.

Over the past 13 years, Gary has been recognised as a renowned puppet master and has helped to raise thosands of pounds through his Punch and Judy shows. His chosen charity, the Macular Society supports people with macular degeneration, a medical condition which causes loss of vision.

Gary said "I've always raised money for good causes, but I'm particularly passionate about fundraising for the sight loss sector... I've had a couple of close family members diagnosed with macular conditions, so it's even closer to home for me now than when I started."

If successful, Gary will be presented with his award at the Macular Society's national annual conference, which takes place at the Leonardo Royal London Tower Bridge Hotel in London, on Saturday 21 September.
