Peter R. Harrison KGCN CBE
29 April 1937 – 18 June 2021
Peter Harrison died peacefully at home in Reigate on the evening of Friday 18th June. A passionate sports fan all his life he was watching an international football match on television at the time. He was eighty four years old.
Amongst many accomplishments in his business and private life the Peter Harrison Foundation was a source of lasting pride and satisfaction to him.
He lived to see the Foundation celebrate a 20th birthday and pass the milestone of £50 million given to charity. The Foundation will live on in his memory and continue the work which he began: promoting sporting opportunity for people with disabilities, investing in education and improving care for children and young people with special needs.
Peter was generous, warm hearted and, in every way, a big personality, who will be much missed by his family and fellow Trustees, by his friends and colleagues.
