Thinking of Christchurch

Heart Icon Thinking of Christchurch

Let’s all think of the people of Christchurch and what we from outside of Christchurch can do to help them.

As mentioned above $20,100 was collected in donations for the Christchurch Relief Fund at the meeting in Wellington Saturday evening and at the Auckland championships over the weekend $800 was collected.

Also our thoughts are with the family of Brian Taylor who, as the managing director of King’s Education Ltd, was in the CTV building at the time of the earthquake and is still unaccounted for.

Brian represented Canterbury on the track and cross country for 20 years from 1963 to 1983. He is a former Canterbury title holder over 1 mile, three miles and six miles as well as a record holder in the mile and six miles. He held the New Zealand University record for three miles. He started coaching in 1964 achieving considerable success with the athletes he coached, gaining eight golds, ten silvers and 15 bronze medals at national championships. Since 1998 he has coached runners to successes at the New Zealand secondary schools championships from 800m upwards to seven gold, five silver and eight bronze. His athletes have also gone on to represent New Zealand at the world cross country championships, Commonwealth Games, Pacific Conference Games and Oceania Games in the 3000m steeplechase, 1500m and 5000m. He was a strong advocate of the Arthur Lydiard training methods and as a good friend of Arthur, has in the past, invited him down from Auckland to watch the Christchurch marathon.

Brian spent 22 years teaching science at Lincoln High School and was also a lecturer at the Christchurch College of Education and the director of the New Zealand Science Centre for 15 years. He was qualified M.Ed, B.Sc and Dip Tchg.
