Business Insider Australia, Simon Thomsen, 31st August 2017

The late James Fairfax delivered one final act of generosity last night, raising more than $10 million to help a range of children’s charities.

The former John Fairfax Ltd chairman died in January this year, aged 83, having spent 71 of those years collecting art by some of Australia’s greatest painters.
