I am nominating Mark Gaddie on behalf of my Primary 6 class. Some words they used to describe him; ?inspirational, ? brave, ?strong, ?supportive, ?gives his time to others even through difficult times of his own. This nomination is also in memory of his wife Alison, who died last October from cancer, aged 39. Mark coaches the youngsters at Melrose Rugby Club and he continued this throughout Alison's illness as well as caring for his 2 children and has carried on since her death. Alison never missed a rugby/football/tennis match and supported the youngsters and Mark's achievements right up until a month before she died. Mark is also responsible for enabling the children to take part in rugby tournaments by; ?booking transport ?choosing teams ?informing parents All 28 children were unanimous at Mark's nomination and running in memory of Alison as well.
