Picture of Stephen LloydBWB's tribute to Stephen Lloyd

It is with shock and deep sadness that we report the death of Stephen Lloyd, our colleague, friend and inspirational former senior partner, who gave so much to the charity and social enterprise sector. Stephen died on Wednesday 20th August in a boating accident on holiday in Wales. Our thoughts are with Lorna and their four sons.

If you would like to send a message to Stephen’s family, we would be pleased to receive it at 2-6 Cannon Street, London EC4M 6YH (care of Martin Bunch) or at condolences@bwbllp.com.

Stephen’s family have requested no flowers but would welcome donations to Quaker Social Action: http://rememberingstephenlloyd.org.uk/

BWB has gathered together some of the many tributes to Stephen that have been made in blogs and social media, which can be read here.
