Timothy Beardson 1951-2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Timothy Beardson, COSF’s former Chairman of the Hong Kong Board of Trustees. He passed away on Monday evening on the 12th October 2020.

“Tim was instrumental in establishing COSF in the UK and was for a time a trustee in Hong Kong. He was also the International Chairman. Although he had stepped back from active involvement in the charity in recent times, his and Clair’s hospitality was legendary and enjoyed by us all at the Hailey lunches which for many years contributed so much to COSF and the scholars,” said Nicholas Dennys QC, COSF’s  UK Chairman.

Timothy was also a mentor for China Oxford Scholars. “It is my fortune to have met Mr Beardson. He set a great example for me as an entrepreneur, an educator, a friend, and a family man.  I will always remember his comments on life and hopefully in the future I can be someone like him, who cares for the next generation of young people. “ said scholar Hanyang Ye who was enrolled in the Global Leadership Initiative at Oxford.

We will all miss him dearly.

An online memorial to celebrate Timothy’s life has been created if you wish to comment, pay tribute or view his obituary.
