The BWAA joins with the entire Paralympic family in offering our sincere condolences to the family of our friend Jean Stone MBE following the very sad news of her recent death.
The contribution that Jean made to Wheelchair Sport world wide cannot be overstated. She was a founding member of Disability Sport Scotland, an influential advisor to the International Paralympic Committee and a driving force within the British Wheelchair Sports Foundation ( later to become Wheelpower )
Her depth of knowledge was immense and her presence on the numerous committees and boards on which she sat will be very difficult, if not impossible, to replace.
We can do no better than to refer you to the excellent piece that Martin McElhatton wrote about Jean on the Wheelpower website www.wheelpower.org.uk
