Beryl Finney

My name is Beryl Finney and I’ve been volunteering at Crownway Community Centre from day one. I was the Fundraising Co-ordinator for the Earlestown Baptist Church during the years they were looking for funding to build a new Church. I have been Secretary to the Crownway Management Committee since its inception and now do most of that work from home.

When Crownway Community Centre first opened I acted as Centre Manager for the first three years before we were successful in being awarded a grant for funding to employ a Centre Manager: I then gradually faded into the background. I act as Line Manager to Carol our Centre Manager on behalf of the Management Committee.

On Thursdays I volunteer in the Kitchen: Thursdays are busy because we have a Luncheon Club for Age Concern and it gets pretty hectic. I also help out on Friday evenings to give Carol a break from evening work.

I’m extremely proud to be involved with the Crownway Organisation which, under Carol Bostock’s leadership, is going from strength to strength.
