22 July 1928 – 16 September 2016

I am sorry to announce that our founder and one of our trustees, George Albert Moore CBE KStJ has passed away at his home on Friday 16th September 2016, age 88 years.

In recognition of a remarkable business career in 1988 Mr Moore was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) at Buckingham Palace.  

His generosity and special interest in charitable causes has been marked over the years, he was awarded Knight of St John status by the justice of the order in 1995.

Mr Moore also took a great interest in the prosperity of Knaresborough and the people who lived and worked in it, generously supporting many local causes. As a mark of gratitude he was made Freeman of Knaresborough in 2001.

He always remained justifiably proud of The George A Moore Foundation which he formed in 1970 originally as a welfare fund for the many employees and their families.  

The charity has assisted many local and selected national charitable organisations over the years including The Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards; The Prince’s Youth Business Trust; The Animal Health Trust; Cancer Research Macmillan Fund; York Minsters; St John Ambulance; HMS Illustrious Welfare Fund; Henshaws College for the Blind Living Life Campaign and more recently has helped the St John the Baptist Church Knaresborough with a refurbishment project.  These are a small selection of the hundreds of charities which have benefited over the years.  

He was a truly remarkable man and will be greatly missed.
