Obituary: Brenda Proctor 1950-2017
Remembering and celebrating a champion of the working class
During the 1984-85 miners' strike, Brenda played a heroic role in building the miners' wives support group at Florence pit which drew in other local pits and became North Staffs Miners Wives Support Group. She also went on to become the chair of Women Against Pit Closures nationally.
After the strike Brenda made sure that North Staffs Miners Wives Action Group continued supporting workers on strike at Wapping, the Liverpool dockers and many others.
