Our very own Nigel Over has been selected as a finalist in The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) 2020 charity awards, for his years of dedication as a trustee to The Smith-Magenis Syndrome Foundation UK.
For over 35 years, Nigel Over has been involved in the running of, or contributing towards numerous charities where he holds a personal interest. His dedication has seen him devote a considerable proportion of his time and effort to the benefit of the widest communities actively contributing to national and local charities including, the British Science Association, ENABLE Scotland, REMAP and, of course, the Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS) Foundation UK. His passion enthuses others to become involved, irrespective of whether he is championing, leading, contributing or supporting these good causes.
Nigel, whose son Matthew has Smith-Magenis syndrome, became involved as a trustee with the SMS Foundation in 2012. During the past eight years, he has been instrumental in leading a governance and development strategy review that now sees our evolution into a well-supported, sustainable charity ensuring the long-term benefits for our community.
