Michael Brophy appointed CBE in New Year's Honours

31 December 2013

John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, said:

"All of us at CAF would like to add our congratulations to Michael Brophy, our former chief executive, who has been appointed a CBE in the Queen's New Years Honours.

We are still building on his tenacious campaigns in the 1980s and 1990s to introduce payroll giving and gift aid in the UK, which continue to have a huge impact on charities across the country, boosting donations and helping charities continue their vital work.

"We would like to extend our congratulations to the dozens of philanthropists and charity colleagues who feature strongly among today's New Year Honours for the excellent work they do underpinning our communities and supporting some of the most vulnerable people here and around the world."
