The club is extremely saddened to learn that club volunteer Dot Booth has passed away after a short illness.
Dot was often the friendly face spectators were greeted by whenever they turned up to buy their tickets to watch the Manchester Magic’s senior team play at the Manchester Basketball Centre.
She was also heavily involved in the Haris Charalambous Memorial Basketball Tournament and supported many of the club’s other events and initiatives.
Dot will be missed by everyone at the club and we are thinking of her husband, Norman, and the rest of her family at this very difficult time.
“Dot was a true club volunteer who had been with us since we opened the centre in 2002,” said Joe Forber, co-founder of Greater Manchester Community Basketball.
“She was always totally supportive of all we do for the youngsters and also for the Magic senior players on Saturday evenings.
“She will leave a big hole to fill in the club and will be sadly missed by all.”
The family has asked that any donations be made to the 1st Flixton Scout Group.
