A member for over 70 years and a trustee for over 25 of them, Beryl sadly passed away this morning following a short illness.
Beryl initially played tennis competitively for the club and latterly played bowls, again competitively. She served on various committees and was a strong supporter of everything to do with PCTBC.
Her service as a trustee helped oversee many massive improvements at the club, which has seen the club grow massively. I had the pleasure of meeting her parents many years ago and latterly her nephew John. Beryl was so proud of her Mum and Dad and loved bringing them to the club. Her nephew John has been looking after her recently and was regularly at her side in her last few days.
Beryl was a significant supporter of Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary with her love of dogs being a major part of her life. She helped raise funds for them and over the last few years regularly walked their dogs as part of her daily routine.
This a very sad day for PCTBC, as one of its stalwart’s has passed.
We will of course publish details of the funeral when known.
UPDATE 3rd Aug – Beryl Worsley’s Funeral will take place at Blackley Crematorium on Thursday 12th August at 3pm followed by a reception at her Club. Donations are requested for Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary.
