Sad News - Paul

Posted by Administrator on Thu 14 June 2018

We are sad to report the passing of Paul Schorb of Charnwood AC - he passed away on Saturday 9th June

Paul was new to officiating but worked hard to learn as much as he could to become a Level 2 Field Judge last year. He was passionate in his support for club events, for county events and for parallel and disability athletics. He had become an important and enthusiastic member of the Sportshall Disability Athletics officiating team.

We have conveyed the condolences of the county athletics association to his family and particularly to his two children who have had to face the loss of both their parents this year. Our hearts go out to them both.

Any cards could be addressed to Paul's children Sam and Alice Schorb, 11 Debdale Hill, Old Dalby, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, LE14 3LF.
The family will be having a collection for CP Sport (of which Paul was a trustee) at the funeral, which will be on Thursday 5th July, 1.15pm at Old Dalby church with the wake at the Crown pub.
A family member, Claire, has sent this message: "He very much enjoyed his involvement with athletics and his children are both very good runners who will continue to be involved in the sport. Thank you very much to you and your colleagues for all the opportunities you provided for Paul.  They brought him a lot of happiness in his retirement."
