Mounfield, who worked as an events agent, had been diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in November 2020 and had been receiving treatment at The Christie Hospital in Manchester. 

Imelda and Mani had been raising significant amounts of money in recent years for local charities, including in December 2022 when they raised over £100,000 for The Christie and Stockport NHS Charity through an auction of music and culture memorabilia. 

Speaking at the time about the reason for their charity work, Imelda said: “Both charities have supported me through my journey.” 

“Cancer affects not just the person who has it, but everyone around them, and I hope that by investing in some more research, we can help alleviate some of the devastation caused to families.” 

Speaking to ITV News last year, Imelda said: “It was a huge shock for our family and friends, because I wasn’t poorly. The doctors didn’t know how I would respond to chemo, but I responded quite well. I’ve been on quite a big journey over the last two years.” 

Earlier this month, Pete Garner, the original bassist in The Stone Roses, died at the age of 59.  

Mani replaced Garner in the Manchester band in 1987, remaining with them until they disbanded in 1996. He then joined Primal Scream that year, leaving in 2011 when The Stone Roses reformed.

Last month, Liam Gallagher teased that his upcoming joint album with Stone Roses guitarist John Squire will be “the best record since ‘Revolver’”.
