Dave Green was an active and much loved member of United Valleys Action Group, he sadly passed away last week due to lung cancer aged 74 in poverty. In September Hollywood based, Newport-born actor Michael Sheen visited a United Valleys Action Group meeting as an observer while making his documentary Valleys Rebellion to coincide with the 175th anniversary of The Chartist rebellion.

Dave made a big impression on Mike. Our group set up a fund to pay for Dave’s funeral expenses to stop social services giving him a pauper’s cremation. Michael has helped us and we are extremely grateful.

It has been an incredible few days.
