Brian O’Donnell

It is with much sadness that we have to report that Brian O’Donnell passed away on Monday, 3rd August. Until recently Brian had been a member of the county committee. His work took him to many parts of the world, where he would always sign up with the local bridge club. In recent years he was a member of Malmesbury Bridge Club, where he shared with us his enthusiasm for life and for bridge. This enthusiasm continued through the eighteen months of his illness. Please keep Brian’s widow, Jen and their family in your thoughts.
