Sadly Kirsty’s mother Jean passed away on 16th May 2017, bringing an end to her tireless campaigning for Kirsty against all the odds. On top of her own long and illustrious career in dance, movement and theatre. A mighty woman – if you have not read her autobiography you should do so. Her body had been failing for a long time but her mind was still as sharp as ever.
“Please keep up the fight – Jean MacColl, May 2017”
The memorial for Kirsty in Cozumel, Mexico is close to fruition, the intention is to have an unveiling ceremony on Friday, 28 July 2017. This is the style of (heavy duty!) bench they propose to install, with a plaque.
It’s a companion bench for Kirsty’s original bench in Soho Square! The logo incorporates Kirsty’s bird drawing (well known from the Justice For Kirsty Campaign) and the Cozumel logo. The latter already has a swallow included in it. The caption will include a line from Kirsty’s song Mother’s Ruin . . .
“When you go, let me dream that I go with you”
