Tributes to our Chair of Trustees, Sue Murphy
It is with deep sadness that we are saying goodbye to our much loved and admired chair of trustees, Sue Murphy.
It’s impossible to put into words the impact Sue has made to lives of people across Manchester. Her dedication to social justice was inspiring and clear to see, over many years as chair of MASH, and her tireless work at Manchester City Council leading on the city’s response to rough sleeping and homelessness.
Sue wasn’t just a huge part of our organisation, she was integral to the very fabric of it. As Chair of the Board, she was an inspiring leader that led MASH through years of change and growth. She was a fearless advocate for the most marginalised women in Manchester.
Sue was a one off powerhouse who will be sadly missed by us all here at MASH. We’re so grateful to her huge contribution over the years. We will always champion her passion and dedication, and continue her legacy.
Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with Sue’s husband Paul, her family, friends and Manchester City Council colleagues at this incredibly difficult time.
