Who was Sir Derek Higgs?

Sir Derek Higgs was known to Coventry for many things: his lifelong support of the Sky Blues, his role in the building of the Ricoh Arena and, through his father's charity, the creation of the Alan Higgs Centre.

Others knew him as a world-respected investment banker who worked hard to reform corporate governance. He was also a much-loved family man: a husband, father and brother.

Last spring Sir Derek Higgs died, suddenly and without any warning; it was a great shock to everyone that knew him. His family, friends and colleagues wanted to show their appreciation for his life in a way that he would have understood - giving a chance to others.

There is nothing more important than saving lives.
