TOMMY Sale’s funeral will take place today (Friday) at 12.15pm at Leigh Parish Church.
This is open to the public for anyone who wishes to attend (reserved seating will be in place for family and invited guests).
Following the funeral service family and close friends will proceed to the crematorium service which will begin at 1.45pm.
After the service the family and invited guests will take refreshments in the banqueting suite at Leigh Sports Village Stadium. Due to the unprecedented numbers expected for the funeral, unfortunately this is being controlled by ticket only due to capacity restrictions in the banqueting suite at Leigh Sports Village Stadium. The church service is open to all and is not restricted.
For supporters not wishing to attend the funeral but still wanting to pay their respects, the funeral procession will drive onto Sale Way and past the front of the LSV Stadium shortly after 11.30am. Donations in memory of Tommy Sale MBE can be made via: crowdfunding.justgiving.com/tommysalembe
