Obituary – Jim Dobbin

Date: 15 September 2014

It is with great sadness that we have today learned of the death of our good friend and benefactor Jim Dobbin MP.

On behalf of the Rochdale World Development Movement I would like to record an appreciation of the life of Jim Dobbin, and to extend our sympathy and prayers to his wife Pat and their 4 children.

Jim was a founding member of our Rochdale Group, and his support, since then, discreet but none-the-less effective, locally, nationally and internationally, has never waned.  Indeed, his encouragement and guidance have sustained our group through some difficult times.
