Cerebral Palsy Sport is very sad to have to announce the death of our Trustee, Paul Schorb.
Paul had served as a Trustee and Non-Executive Director of Cerebral Palsy Sport for a relatively short period after joining the Board in May 2017 but his impact was immediate.
Paul served on our Board of Trustees and also as a member of the charity’s Finance, Fundraising and Marketing Sub Committee member. He was also a committed Athletics Official especially in Leicestershire and for our events. He had volunteered at a number of our sports and fundraising events.
Before joining the Board at Cerebral Palsy Sport, Paul retired as the Financial Director and Company Secretary of Glenstone Property Plc in September 2016, following 40 years in both the professional and corporate sector. He was a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants with experience in financial management and reporting, corporate governance and auditing.
Paul enjoyed hill walking, water colour painting, gardening and a variety of sports and also volunteered as a chorister with the Old Dalby Singers and his local Church Group. Paul leaves two adult children.
Aideen Blackborough, Chair of Cerebral Palsy Sport said: “We are all devastated by the sad news of Paul’s death. His contribution to the charity with his financial guidance at Board level, committed volunteering at events and his enthusiasm to support people with cerebral palsy will be so sorely missed. We send our deepest condolences to Paul’s family and friends at this very sad time.”
