Moving tributes to Paul Goggins

Paul GogginsSince we posted our own tribute to Paul Goggins (our former Coordinator who passed away last week), many people who knew Paul or worked with him have shared their own tributes and memories. We have gathered them all here.

I was very sad and surprised to hear of Paul Goggins’ death.  I was aware of his work
and attended some events he chaired back when I was in Manchester in community
development work, and health/ poverty work (now in financial exclusion).

When the time is right, I hope there will be a suitably useful CAP project set up in Paul’s name and memory.
Tony McCaffry

A really special man, with a passion for fighting injustice – he will be so missed.

Deeply shocked and saddened at the death of Paul Goggins, we are all impoverished by his loss, and must make every effort to work for the principles he held so dear.
