It is with great sadness that the RAF Association has heard of the tragic death of Claire Squires, 30, following the London Marathon on Sunday.
Claire was a wonderfully vibrant and energetic person, who was a keen charity supporter and loved by all who knew her.
Claire’s efforts in support of the RAF Association helped to raise hundreds of pounds for our charity and that is something for which we will always be grateful.
In 2011 she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and also took part in other fundraising events in support of the RAF Family in recent years.
Her close friend, Nicola Short, who she climbed Mt Kilimanjaro with, said: “Claire is an inspiration to us all. She brought laughter and love to everyone’s life. She will be sorely missed by all.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.
