A number of our clubs who were previously in the Isthmian League will remember Alan Turvey, who served as the League's chairman for over 30 years before becoming President in recent years. Alan sadly died last week after a short illness and as a League we send our sincere condolences to Alan's family and, of course,the Isthmian (Bostik) League
The funeral is being held on Thursday 29th November at 1pm at St Mary’s Church, Church Lane, Old Basing, RG24 7DJ.
Alan’s family has passed on the details of his funeral and wished to let everyone know they are all welcome to attend. Alan’s daughter Susan has said “The more the better! We want a really big send-off. We hope as many people as possible will attend."
If Clubs or individuals wish to send flowers they should be sent to the Undertakers, Spencer and Peyton, 380 Worting Road, Basingstoke RG22 5DZ to arrive before 11am on the 29th November.
If Clubs or individuals prefer to make a charitable donation instead of flowers the family have requested that donations be made to the Hospice which treated Alan’s wife, Margaret, three years ago and are the carers who look after her now. This is St. Michael's Hospice (North Hampshire), Basil de Ferranti House, Aldermaston Road, Basingstoke, Hampshire RG24 9NB. Single donations can be made online at www.stmichaelshospice.org.uk where Gift Aid can claimed. If making a donation in this way please do make the donation in Alan’s memory so that the Charity can see how much has been collected in this way.
