Tearfund’s first Chairman of the Board, Glyn MacAulay, 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 service for Glyn’s life took place on Friday, 1st November at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London.
