Tribute: Nigel McCune

It is with profound sadness that we have to announce that our former Trustee, Nigel McCune, passed away very suddenly. It has come as a huge shock to our team and to all our associates.

Nigel was instrumental in setting up Attitude is Everything and transforming it from a one-year pilot project into a fully-fledged charity. He was there from its very inception – becoming one of the first members of the project’s steering group, and then going on to become one of the charity’s first Trustees and Board Officers.

Throughout the 15 years that he served as a Trustee, he was always supportive, positive, enthusiastic and deeply passionate about our work. 

Nigel was also a great friend to many of us. He was exceptionally kind, empathetic and compassionate. He was always ready to listen and to help. His sense of humour was legendary and was a great person to be around.

He was a breath of fresh air in an industry that can be competitive and unforgiving. He will very much missed by us all.

Our thoughts are with his family and all of his friends.
