Some of you may be aware that Michelle Bridge was a Vox Political reader and occasionally corresponded with This Writer.
I have an invitation from her, to join a Google+ group called We Love British Music, awaiting approval at the moment.
So this has come as something of a shock.
There is an appeal to help pay for funeral costs, and I would urge readers to consider helping out. If we all gave £1, we would have paid for it many times over.
Vox Political offers condolences to Michelle’s family and friends.
Tributes have been paid to a welfare rights campaigner from Runcorn who has died suddenly at the age of 43.
Michelle Bridge passed away on the afternoon of Monday, May 16, leaving a 25-year-old son.
Her nephew Louis Bridge said Michelle was an ‘amazing person who always put everyone else before herself’ and who would run through paperwork for residents with benefits issues in her home.
In 2013 she helped to organise protests against the ‘bedroom tax’ at Runcorn Town Hall and in Widnes under the banner of the ‘Stand Up In Halton’ campaign.
An appeal has been launched to raise cash toward her funeral costs with a target of £1,500, and her family has requested donations instead of flowers.
Donate to the funeral here.
