Joyce Beeton - 1921 - 2017




It is with great regret and huge sadness that we must announce the passing of Joyce Beeton. Joyce very sadly, but peacefully passed Saturday 19th November after a lengthy stay in hospital.


She was truly the first lady of Basingstoke Rugby Club. Joyce was not only the club's greatest supporter but also a watchful eye over generations of Basingstoke players.

Her iconic pin badge blazer(s) were known across the region and we are proud to have one hung in the club house in her memory. As custodian of the raffle, Joyce's unique sales patter was responsible for raising hundreds of thousands of pounds over the years.

Basingstoke Rugby Club will be a poorer place for her loss and not because of her exploits with the raffle book.
During the years of her involvement with Basingstoke that Joyce raised in the region of £200,000 for the club!


Keep an eye here for details of the service on Friday 1st December.
