WE were sad­dened re­cently to hear of the death of one of our vol­un­teers who has been in­stru­men­tal in the suc­cess of our com­mu­nity project.

Jane Leah, who had been in­volved with us since our con­cep­tion in 2003, sadly passed away on Sun­day, May 31 af­ter a short ill­ness.

Jane was the mum of Simon Leah who car­ries out all the tech­ni­cal work that goes on be­hind the scenes and at­tends many lo­cal events, pro­vid­ing the PA sys­tems at the events. If you have been to any of the events that Simon has cov­ered you will also have seen Jane sup­port­ing him.

She made an ex­cel­lent cup of tea for us all from the back of Simon’s van.

Jane was also very cre­ative and made cud­dly toys which she do­nated to us to help raise funds for our project. She will be greatly missed by ev­ery­one who had the plea­sure of know­ing her.

Jane’s fu­neral will take place on Fri­day, June 12 at 10am at Macclesfield Cre­ma­to­rium and Simon would like any­one who knew Jane to at­tend the ser­vice and pay their re­spects.

Simon would also like to ex­press his sin­cere grat­i­tude to staff from the Macmil­lan nurses and East Cheshire Hospice for the great care and com­pas­sion they showed to both his mum and him dur­ing her ill­ness.

Simon has re­quested no flow­ers at the ser­vice but would ap­pre­ci­ate any dona­tions, which will be made to both the Macmil­lan nurses and East Cheshire Hospice.
