It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Ken Nash.

Ken passed away on Friday 22nd March in hospital.

Ken, aged 71, was a BBS board member for over 10 years and began his role as Chair from January 2016.  He was a much loved and well respected member of the BBS team.

Ken was a fantastic supporter of sport for visually impaired people, introducing shooting for the blind across the UK in 1994 and encouraging its development ever since.  Since its inception over 14 years ago, he set up and chaired the BBS shooting section and he organised and ran the British Blind Shooting championships held at Wolverhampton annually.

A man of great stature within the shooting community, Ken was a life member of the National Smallbore Rifle Association in the role of Vice Chairman for over 20 years.  He was also Chairman of the Rifle Committee and the Referees Committee.

Ken will be sadly missed by many.  Our condolences go to his wife, family and friends.

For those wishing to offer their condolences, please e-mail your messages to Alaina MacGregor, CEO at chiefexec@britishblindsport.org.uk

Your notes of sympathy will be passed on in confidence.
