2007 was our year for paying tribute and on 23rd October we were asked to lead a procession to commemorate Body Shop founder Dame Anita Roddick (1942 – 2007) and celebrate her life and her mission as an Activist to make the world a better place.

“Anita Roddick travelled amongst the destitute, the oppressed, the exploited, and the condemned, but she never lost hope or stamina, because she knew that there was joy and possibility in creating new, imaginative ways to make things better. She had little patience for those who said they were too busy to be activists. “Then be a sittist! Sit at your computer and participate!” She knew that doing any small thing to improve a life, to right a wrong, brings joy to those who do as well as to those who benefit. That’s why she laughed all the way to changing the world.” I am an Activist
