Promoting a positive, caring outlook, for the one life we have

Barrie Berkley 1927-2018


We are very sad to announce the death of our president Barrie Berkley. Barrie worked to foster a kinder, rational and more tolerant society through Humanism. He was not only active in North East Humanists but was also fervent supporter of the International Humanist and Ethical Union and of Humanists UK, and he made a huge contribution to the work of Uganda Humanist Schools Trust.

We fondly remember Barrie, his warmth, his humour and his sharp intellect. Throughout his life, Barrie endeavoured to make the world a better place, and his legacy is that he succeeded in that aim.
