Obituary: Harold Cottam

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of longstanding LAE supporter Harold Cottam, who died on 13 December 2021 after a short illness. Mr. Cottam enjoyed a distinguished career, including serving as UK Managing Partner of Ernst and Young (EY) and as Chair of Britannic. Harold, who was also a talented musician and keen on cricket, was a man of deep integrity and generosity who supported many causes.  He particularly believed in education and the work of LEA.


Harold’s wife, Lyn, and their children have kindly asked that friends and family make donations to LAE as a way of commemorating his memory. Donations can be made here.
