Bob Blackaby

It is with great sadness that we hear that Bob Blackaby sadly passed away on Thursday morning (24/09/2015).

Bob had always been very much involved in Shrewsbury Interfaith Forum from its early days, as he was a firm believer in harmony and peace between the different faith groups. He was also involved in the recent Multicultural Fun Day, which both he and his wife, Jenny were able to attend and participate in. His warm and welcoming style and his supportive, open manner to people of all faiths and none provided a heartwarming example, not to mention the regular tea and coffee he and Jenny provided! Bob and Jenny, along with many members of the Interfaith Forum and community supported Shrewsbury Muslim Centre in our efforts to overcome obstacles to open the Centre.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jenny and both their families and friends at this sad time.
