It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of former CEO of John Lyon’s Charity, Andrew Stebbings, who passed away on Friday 9th June 2023 following a brave and lengthy battle with cancer.
As Clerk to the Governors of Harrow School, Andrew had the vision, determination and perseverance to oversee, after a decade-long campaign, the creation of John Lyon’s Charity in 1991. As Clerk, and later the first Chief Executive Officer, Andrew shaped John Lyon’s Charity and steered it to become a force for good, a force for change and one of the largest independent funders in London. Andrew’s legacy lives on today with John Lyon’s Charity and we are forever grateful for his tenacity and foresight in ensuring John Lyon’s Charity had a positive future.
Our deepest condolences go out to Andrew’s wife Jane, his sons Peter, Jamie, Guy and Will, his friends and to all those within the Harrow community who will no doubt share in this great loss.
Andrew Stebbings, 1951 – 2023
