Colin Harvey – Above and Beyond

October 14th, 2019 · No Comments

One of the founding parents of BristolCon was Colin Harvey, who sadly passed away in 2011. He is much loved and missed by those who were there at the first BristolCons. It was therefore not surprising that Colin became our Ghost of Honour at the 2012 BristolCon. More about Colin can be found here.

As part of our 10th anniversary and as a thank you to Colin for helping to start BristolCon up, we will have charity boxes for donations to his beloved charity, Above and Beyond, which raises funds for Bristol city centre hospitals. They will be in Programme Rooms 1 and 2, and on the book swap table.

Donations up to £250 will be matched! Yes, up to £250 through the generosity of another donor, for which we are very grateful.

You could say our Ghost of Honour will be putting in an appearance at this year’s BristolCon, but it is fairer to say BristolCon is one of his many good legacies he left to the world.
