We are very sorry to announce the death of Lord Wolfson of Marylebone on 20 May 2010.
Lord Wolfson was a Founder Trustee of the Wolfson Foundation when it was established in 1955 and, since 1972, had been Chairman. He was also Chairman of the Wolfson Family Charitable Trust. The work and philosophy of both charities have been shaped to a considerable extent by his influence, and under his financial stewardship the funds have grown to their present level of some £750 million. During his lifetime over £1 billion (in current values) was invested in a wide range of charitable activities.
