Charity Angel. – 6 December 2021

Last week our community was deeply saddened by the loss of a wonderful local lady who passed away following a battle with cancer. Mandy Taylor was a fabulous woman, full of life, energy, kindness and love. Previously, she had survived breast cancer twice, but then sadly the cancer returned and she passed away last week.


Mandy was known to our family of schools through our More In Common community work. She helped with charity fundraisers; events such as the Run for Jo; the Jo Cox Way Cycle; Charity Angels and so much more. She dedicated much of her life to helping others and was involved with Huddersfield Town Football Club, the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and many more fantastic projects and initiatives to help improve the lives of others. She was also an ambassador of The Piece Hall in Halifax.


When Mandy was informed that her cancer was terminal she also set up #bemoreMandy encouraging others to live life to the full. Mandy had the power to light up a room, and she had such drive and tenacity. She will be deeply missed, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family, her loved ones and everyone whose heart she touched. Mandy encouraged everyone to be the very best version of themselves each and every day.
