Robert Winsor, a renowned British businessman and philanthropist, has sadly died at the age of 79 at his home in Mallorca, Spain, after suffering from a long illness.

Awarded an MBE by Queen Elizabeth in 2013 for his services to disabled children in Mallorca and the United Kingdom, Winsor dedicated his life to helping the most disadvantaged groups in society.

The businessman was best known on the island for launching ‘The Robert Winsor Charity Golf Tournaments’ at the Royal Bendinat Golf Club, where he was able to draw the support of British celebrities such as Jasper Carrott, Robert Powell, Jimmy Hill, Lance Percival and the late Kenny Lynch.

The tournaments grew to be one of the biggest fundraising events in Europe, where the substantial amounts of money raised changed the lives of hundreds of underprivileged children.
