Dorothy ‘Got Her Share’….and Her Shares Live On!

Dorothy Carpenter 1926-2016Towards the end of June, one of Wycombe Wanderers eldest fans sadly passed away.

Dorothy Carpenter from Stokenchurch was ninety years old and registered blind and this picture was taken of her last Christmas in her favourite WWFC t-shirt – aged 90.
Due to her age and blindness, Dorothy didn’t attend games (apart from the Trophy Final in 91), but she would always be ready in her armchair at 3 o’clock waiting for the commentary to start on Chairboys Player. Before that, in the nineties she would sit by a crackly old MW radio listening to the commentary on 1170 with Alan Hutchinson.

Her son tells that that she was totally behind Wycombe Wanderers, ever the optimist and wouldn’t let anyone say a bad word about them.

When the Share Scheme was launched Dorothy had no hesitation in helping the club out.The rules of the Share Scheme allow the Trust Board to consider and approve any transfer of shares and we are pleased to allow for these to be transferred to her son Stephen, himself already a Share Scheme investor in his own right.

The picture above on the right, shows Stephen Carpenter receiving a new certificate representing his late mum’s shares, now transferred to him, from Share Scheme Administrator and Trust Director Alan Cecil. They are also displaying one of the new Anthem Jackets which bears the names of the first 150 investors into the Share Scheme. Click here to see how to order one for yourself
