Orrell Proms which took place at the weekend paid a touching tribute to Ellen Higginbotttom through the release of 100 white balloons into the afternoon sky.
Duffy’s ‘Warwick Avenue’, one of Ellen’s favourite songs, played as the balloons were released.
Winstanley College Principal, Louise Tipping, attended the tribute. She said: ‘Thanks so much to Spencer Anglesea from Orrell Cricket Club and the organisers of the Proms for arranging the balloon release. It was a really beautiful way to honour Ellen’s memory.’
