Cardiff City LFC’s new office headquarters have been named “The Joan Bright Suite” after former club treasurer Joan Bright.
Several former players and volunteers were joined by Joan’s husband Allan and his family to cut the ribbon to officially mark the occasion in honour of his beloved wife Joan who recently passed.
Joan, a Vice President of our club, held the position of Club Treasurer for 35 years right from the first day that our Club was founded in 1975 and rarely missed a Club function or fundraising event. In our early days she was the backbone of our club giving up so much of her time as a volunteer for us whilst holding down a demanding job as a nurse in the NHS and bringing up her family.
After her retirement, Joan kept a watchful eye on not only our progress as a club but also on our current and past players, following their successes both on the field and in their personal lives with interest and pride.
We are all delighted to name the Suite after Joan and her photograph holds pride and place in the office.
