It is with much regret that we announce the death of Helen George, 74. Helen was a member of the Archery GB Board of Directors and was passionate about improving our sport for everyone and particularly for those with disabilities.

For several years, Helen chaired the Archery GB Disabilities Committee she was also a member of the World Archery Para Archery Committee. We will miss her enthusiasm, knowledge and wise counsel. Our thoughts are with her husband, Tony.

David Harrison, former Chair of Archery GB, paid tribute. He said: “Helen was a truly inspirational person who was loved and respected across the archery world. Helen, you were and always will be my friend, coach and mentor. Rest in peace.”
