Bolton Lads & Girls Club has said it is in a state of shock after the death of one of its most prolific and well respected supporters, Vincent Kelly, in the Nepal aircrash.
Kelly, 50, was a long standing supporter, having been a Club member in his youth.
Mr Kelly’s friend of over 25 years, Mark Brocklehurst, who is also a member of Bolton Lads & Girls Club Board said:
"We are devastated to hear the news of the deaths of Vincent and his brother Darren. It is a terrible tragedy that has seen us lose a wonderful powerhouse of a man, leaving us numb.
"There aren’t enough words to describe just how wonderful Vincent was - a dedicated family man with a generous heart of gold who was a perfect role model for all.”
