Story

We are Eva (aged 2) and Zac (aged 10 months) and our Auntie was Boo Armstrong, who died of cancer, aged 37, in October 2012. Boo was a brilliant campaigner: she fought passionately for animals (she was vegan all her adult life), gay people (she was the youngest ever Chair of Lesbian and Gay Switchboard when she was 19), women (she was director of Women and Health for ten years), the environment (she helped her sister Franny, our mum, make widely-seen films about climate change, McDonald's, animal rights and big dams) and healthcare (her last big project was to found Get Well UK, which aimed to make complementary therapies available free to everyone, regardless of whether they are rich or poor). 

Her death is an incalculable loss to us personally, to everyone who loved her, and to all the people who would have benefitted from her campaigning work. 

We are joining a team from Boo's favourite charity, Women and Health, to walk round all the Blue Plaques which honour women in Camden who have achieved amazing things. It is a 6.3 mile walk, so our Mum is going to push us some of the way in our pushchair, but we will definitely both walk as well (even tho Zac can't actually walk properly yet). Please sponsor us to raise money for Women and Health in memory of Boo.
