It is with considerable sadness that I report the recent death of Peter Leckie, 55, a former Trustee of Parity. He was a supporter of J4MB from the outset, and at his request I spoke at one of Parity’s AGMs.
Peter, a Roman Catholic, suffered serious back problems throughout his adult life, following a sports injury when he was a teenager. About 18 months ago, in frustration with conventional medicine, he went online and bought some drugs, which apparently resulted in a speedy decline in his physical health. In more recent times he contracted Motor Neurone Disease.
A short obituary in the Liverpool Echo is here, along with details of his forthcoming funeral.
Our thoughts are with Peter’s family and friends.
