We are very sorry to hear that Helen George passed away yesterday in the Palliative Care Unit of North Tyneside Hospital. No further details are available at present but will be provided by Tony once these are arranged.
Our thoughts are with Tony and her family, Helen was known well throughout the region and beyond and will be missed by a great many people.
From County Chairman Dave Harrison
Helen was a coach,mentor and good friend to the archery world and more so to Para archers who she was passionate about. She gave her time expertise to anyone who asked, and improved everyone she coached. Her archers have achieved European, World and Olympic Golds. Our very own archer Alex Wise is testimony to that.
From my own point she was my coach and helped me achieve standards way above what I had expected, she was close friend to myself and my wife Dot. I along with the whole archery world will dearly miss her. I have said that every arrow I shoot from now will be testament to Helen, I will remember her every time I shoot
Mine, and I’m sure every archers, sympathies go to her husband Tony and her family. Rest in Peace my friend
