Bernadette Cocksworth

21st March 2014


There will be a celebration of the life of Bernie Cocksworth (Housemistress of Harvey House: 2001-2013 and Head of Economics: 2002-2013) in the Quire of the Cathedral at 2.30 pm on the afternoon of 23rd April by kind permission of the Dean and Chapter. There will be tea afterwards in the Chapter House.

The service is intended as a celebration of Bernie's life and therefore Geoff and the family have requested that attendees do not wear black in the hope that the service will be a fittingly colourful one.

In order to help with the practical and catering arrangements, please e-mail Susan Tingle, OKS Manager: s.tingle@kings-bursary.co.uk if you would like to attend.

The OKS Office is also collating any reminiscences and/or photographs of Bernie's time at King's so do please send anything that you would like to share to Susan Tingle at the above address.

Geoff and the family have been humbled by the support that has come in from all corners of the King's community during this difficult time and have set up a fund for any donations in Bernie's memory to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity: https://www.justgiving.com/Bernie-Cocksworth.
