A tribute to Brad Welsh

Bradley Welsh was tragically killed back in April. I had trained in his gym during my undergraduate degree in Edinburgh and never imagined I’d be writing about his death in such circumstances.

Brad was a character, a one-off, and he did an amazing amount for communities in Edinburgh.

I was shocked by Brad’s passing and wanted to help articulate why Brad was such a valued and loved community leader. He overcame dark times in his past and became an important contributor to Edinburgh communities.

Below are the two articles I wrote in the aftermath of Bradley’s death.
