Giles Williams« Back to News


gilesGiles Williams, who was an enthusiastic supporter of the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust, died unexpectedly on September 9th.

Giles was a partner at KPMG in London. Their chairman described him as “one of the world’s leading experts on financial services regulation” and “the ‘go to’ adviser for the major financial institutions, regulators and governments”. He was also a born and bred Cornishman who loved this part of the county and was committed to making a difference here.

Many people will have seen KPMG in bold letters on one of our boats, as it was donated by Giles and his partners.

Giles will be much missed by all his many friends around the Helford River. A memorial service was held at Constantine Church on Friday 30th September with a reception afterwards at the Trengilly Wartha Inn, and there will be a memorial service in London on 14th November.

All are welcome.

Giles’ family have asked that any donations in his memory are made to the HRCST.
