Our thoughts and prayers with his family.
It brings me great sadness to inform you that Alan Bown long-standing UKIP Member, NEC Member and Party donor has passed away.
Alan was a personal friend to many and hugely respected by the party's membership.
UKIP will be forever grateful for Alan's commitment and support of the party.
Without Alan there would be no UKIP.
Our thoughts and condolences go to his wife, family and friends at this very difficult time.
National Party Chairman
