Many of you who frequent Preston Park parkrun or take part in the WSFRL races may know of him.
An Arena member since 2012 and a long-time member of the Veterans Athletic club he took part in the very early days of Hove Park parkrun. Jacko has been on the running circuit forever, long before running was fashionable and was still an active volunteer to the very end.
Our condolences go his family at this sad time.
Welfare Officer, Arena 80.
My name is Kerrie Noakes, I am the daughter of Terry Avey who you probably know as Jackos good friend and running buddy.
Following the terribly sad news about Jackos passing myself and my dad are running a half marathon (nothing official just our own route starting in southwick along the seafront) in Jackos memory on the 20th September and we are trying to raise money for Cancer Research.
Here is the just giving page, all donations go straight to Cancer Research so I was hoping you could pass this on to the members of Arena 80 and if they’d like to donate that would be lovely.
Also if anyone else wanted to do our half marathon with us in a socially distant safe way please get in touch via my email address
Many kind regards
Kerrie and Terry
