It is with much sadness that Preston Harriers announce that club secretary and coach Bob Welfare has passed away overnight. Bob did so much for this club and athletics, for Lancashire Schools, Lancashire AA, the Mid Lancs League and on wider regional bodies. For Preston Harriers he was instrumental in so many initiatives and he was a patient, understanding coach, who adored working with all the juniors over so many years. He will be sorely missed by everyone at the club and in the wider athletics community. Our deepest sympathies go out to Angela, Christine, Anthony and all of Bob’s family.
