Brian Higgins

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the sudden death of our friend and stalwart of the Mellor March, Brian.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Hillary and the family who are trying to come to terms with their sudden loss.

Brian was the driving force on the committee and like all the pursuits he got involved with, he put more in than he ever got out. A loving family man and a great friend who will be missed by everyone.

The Mellor March was founded in 1994 by Pad Whitham, Richard Jones and Tim Lowe. The first March started and finished at Mellor Church and raised just over £1000. Then they moved to the Royal Oak as a base for registration and refreshment at the end of the walk. To date, over £150,000 has been donated 'to cancer causes in our community'.
