Remembering Chris Yates

We are very sad to hear of the loss of Chris Yates who passed away in Manchester at the age of 76 on 21 November.

He is remembered below by our Deputy Chair, Rev’d Ronald Corp:

“Chris Yates devoted much time and energy to Help Musicians UK or the Musicians Benevolent Fund as he knew it.  At first, he was Chairman of the Giving Committee and then later, Chairman of the Board. He was a committed and enthusiastic ambassador of the work of the charity particularly in helping young musicians at the start of their careers. He had a profound compassion for musicians and an understanding of their working lives.  He brought his great experience and wisdom to help everyone who works in music.”
