Sheffield Trade Union Council wishes to record its profound sadness at the sudden death of Shirley Frost, tireless working class campaigner for progressive causes and well known to the Sheffield Trade Union and Labour Movement. She was best known for her prominent role in Sheffield Defend Council Housing where she played a major role in the campaign to stop the Tories despicable Housing and Planning Bill. She was a leading figure in the Bedroom Tax campaign and fought tirelessly for a decent and proper Welfare State to support working class people in hard times. She put her mouth where her heart was and spoke up for the poor and disadvantaged. She was a great example to us all. She will be sadly missed.
Her funeral is today at City Road Cemetery, Sheffield at 2.30pm Wednesday 3rd August.
