Elaine Carter death

January 24, 2020

The club is deeply saddened to announce the death of former Club President Elaine Carter. Elaine, 74, had been ill for several years and her condition deteriorated just before Christmas. She died on Friday 24th January.

A Life Member of Brighton and Hove AC, Elaine was the driving force behind the Supporters’ Club, alongside Carole Dale and Hazel Bristow, both of whom died last year.

She was a warm, fiercely intelligent, witty woman whom club coach Pete Witcomb described as, “one of the best, a truly lovely lady.”

We send our condolences to Elaine’s husband, B&H Olympian Chris Carter, whom she met aged 14 and supported throughout his illustrious running career, to their sons club coach Richard, and Andrew and to grandchildren Emma and Ben and the wider family.

Funeral arrangements will be shared once finalised.
