Today’s Racing Post is packed with memories of John Dunlop, who died at the weekend. For us at the NTF, John was all this and more. He gave so much time to the Federation and as a valued Council member instigated the constitutional review which led to the current regional structure and Presidential Triumvirate system.
As a trustee of the NTF Charitable Trust, which makes training grants to racing employees, John helped staff to develop their skills and so forge a career in the sport. This was typical of his approach to people – full of encouragement and practical support. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with all his family.
There will be a service of thanksgiving for John on Wednesday 19th September at 2.00pm at St. Paul’s Church, 32a Wilton Pl, Knightsbridge, London SW1X 8SH.
