On 18 September, Jonathan Cooper OBE, member of the Granta Trust board, died of a sudden and unexpected heart attack. He was walking in the Highlands with his long-term partner and husband Kevin Childs, and two friends. They remarked on the beauty of the landscape, the privilege of sitting by a Scottish loch, watching the sun falling on the water and their beloved dog Molly swimming. We will miss him. RIP.
