But he was best known for his charity work raising tens of millions of pounds for many hospitals all around Briton but mostly in London. He died in 2011 and since then a scandal has started about his life of sex abuse.
Unknown to everyone who new him he started molesting children in 1955, 50 years he was at it and his abuse peaked between 1966 and 1976 when he was aged between 40 and 50.
The victims included 28 children aged under 10, including 10 boys aged as young as eight. A further 63 were girls aged between 13 and 16 and nearly three quarters of his victims were under 18. Some 214 criminal offences have been recorded across 28 police forces and 34 rapes have been reported.
Police said the attacks took place over 54 years – the earliest in Manchester in 1955 – and in 14 locations, including hospitals and a hospice, where he was accused of sexually touching a patient aged between 13 and 16.
Some of the girls reported the crime at the time but he was held in such high regard that people and the police did not believe them. To date there are 214 sex crimes from one man and it looks like there could be more to come.
From a much loved person to a pedophile in one year.
