Sir David Kirch, KBE

PHILANTHROPIST

In 2006 David Kirch, the British businessman, collector and philanthropist, announced on his 70th birthday that he would give everyone in Jersey over 70 years old £100 of Co-op vouchers. He has continued to give away around £1m each year since then. The Jersey resident last year handed his entire £100 million fortune to the island's elderly after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. In 2013 he appeared at the top of the Sunday Times Giving List, and was made a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services as a philanthropist to senior citizens of Jersey.
