Fisherman’s Friend: Calls for memorial to Lancashire philanthropist Doreen Lofthouse

Calls have been made for a memorial to honour Fisherman’s Friend tycoon Doreen Lofthouse in her hometown in Fleetwood. The businesswoman, who grew the cough sweets from a small firm into a global brand, died aged 91 on Wednesday. Since her death, many have called for a permanent   tribute to the Lancashire philanthropist, whose generosity had helped “transform Fleetwood”. Fisherman’s Friend lozenges were originally developed by pharmacist James Lofthouse in 1865 to relieve various respiratory problems commonly suffered by fishermen. >click to read<  12:33
