Paying tribute to John Neill, who lost his battle with cancer this week, Caroline Flint said:
“John is a huge loss to Doncaster. Since the success of 2 Grand in 2009, John has shown boundless energy and with Sallie, became a huge fundraiser for good causes, including the fight against cancer.
“John showed that you cannot write someone off in their 60, 70s or even their 80s. He was passionate about helping, a proud trade unionist and socialist and I was honoured that he appeared on my election address in 2010. Rossington can be very proud of his example.
“I wish Sallie and their family the very best, and hope she achieves even more success in the future.”
