Malcolm Wilson

21 February 2016 in Uncategorized

IMAG0806_BURST002_COVERLancashire and North West Swimming are mourning the recent death of Referee Malcolm Wilson, following a short but brave battle against cancer.

Malcolm was a friend and mentor to so many within the swimming community, a true gentleman in whom there was no guile.

He has enriched the swimming world through his invaluable contribution over so many years, particularly in relation to the training and development of officials.

A past member of the Lancashire County Executive, Past President of Bolton & District S&WPA  and a Life Member of the North Lancs Association, Malcolm will be greatly missed by his many friends in the swimming community.

We extend our heart felt condolences to Malcolm’s wife Vivien and his son and daughter.

Donations can be made in memory of Malcolm to either “Bolton Hospice” or “The Christie” Charity.
