Tearfund’s founding Chairman dies

13 Sep 2019

Tearfund’s first Chairman of the Board, Glyn MacAulay, has passed away on Tuesday (3rd September 2019), aged 82.

Tearfund CEO, Nigel Harris said: ‘We are saddened by the news of the passing of Glyn MacAulay. Glyn was one of Tearfund’s founding members and his accountancy skills and expertise were invaluable in establishing Tearfund as a Christian relief and development organisation. Glyn was an incredibly kind and generous man who always took time for people. He will be very much missed’.

Glyn was Tearfund’s first Chairman of the Board serving until 1975.

Described by friends as a ‘giant of Godly character’, Glyn chaired the G F MacAulay Charitable Trust and played valued roles as a Trustee for Activities Industry Mutual, Christians in Entertainment and the Siddons Charitable Trust.

A thanksgiving for Glyn’s life will be held on Friday, November 1st at 2pm at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, followed by a reception in the Langham Hotel opposite.
