Mandy had helped raise funds for the refurbishment of The Piece Hall in Halifax among a number of other ventures and charities, and inspired many people because of her unrelenting positivity.

Despite being diagnosed with cancer three times in the last 10 years, she said it had introduced her to a world of new opportunities while in her 40s.
