The ‘Giv­ing Tues­day’ cam­paign is search­ing for some­one who has shown an ex­tra­or­di­nary com­mit­ment to char­ity and who has the po­ten­tial to be the UK’s face of the global cam­paign.

De­nis – who has been a hero to many for his work at the food bank – has been nom­i­nated for the Char­i­ties Aid Foun­da­tion (CAF) by the East Kil­bride, Strathaven and Les­ma­hagow MP.

Dr Cameron said: “We all know peo­ple who go above and be­yond the call of duty to sup­port char­ity – this is a chance to cel­e­brate those who make such an im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tion to our daily life in East Kil­bride, Strathaven and Les­ma­hagow.

“I have nom­i­nated De­nis Cur­ran of Loaves and Fishes to be our lo­cal char­ity cham­pion.

“Many peo­ple in the con­stituency know of the great work that De­nis and his wife Cathy have done over the years and I’d like them to have the chance to dis­cuss their work on a na­tional level.”

Ben Rus­sell, director of com­mu­ni­ca­tions at CAF said: “The next cham­pion will help to in­spire mil­lions of peo­ple across the coun­try to do good stuff.”
