When his high-flying political career came to an end, Jack (as he was known to friends) “quietly began work at Toynbee Hall”. He was a master fundraiser with huge energy and many influential contacts. Over the years he raised thousands of pounds for projects at Toynbee Hall. He also did much to increase the charity’s profile. In 1975 he was awarded a CBE for his work at Toynbee Hall. He went on to become our President. He was proud to be “a cockney by adoption” and continued to work at Toynbee Hall until the week before his death.
