Giles was a Patron and former Trustee of SPIRIT having joined the board of Trustees shortly after its formation in 1996 and served until his retirement in December 2016.
He was an eminent barrister and a former Deputy High Court Judge and had a very distinguished career from 1967 until his retirement from the Bar in 2005.
He was a kind and generous man and for many years took a keen interest in the community of those with spinal cord injury having represented many in their quest for justice throughout his career.
