In memory of Helen Holder

29 August 2011

Helen Holder, dearest colleague and friend to all those in Friends of the Earth Europe, passed away on Sunday 28th August, after almost seven years fighting against cancer. Helen was a force in both our work, and our lives, and was part of Friends of the Earth Europe from August 2005, first as a campaigner against genetically modified organisms, and later as the coordinator of the Food, Agriculture and Biodiversity Programme. She was a brilliant campaigner and a wholehearted environmental activist. She will be deeply missed.

A slideshow of images of the time Helen spent on Gerald Miles's organic farm in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in Summer 2011 is available on request. Many thanks to Gerald for this.
