Many people involved in No Borders and anti-deportation activities will already know about the passing away of Miriam Hollis in her sleep just after midnight on Saturday 26th February 2011. Miriam coordinated the Sankofa Foundation and in her professional capacity counselled survivors of war and torture. She was also involved with the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns and gave support to many asylum seekers and refugees in Nottingham and Notts and elsewhere.
The family has decided to have a small and private funeral. They however would like to invite everyone to Miriam’s wake which is going to be held on Thursday 3rd of March from 6.30pm onwards at:
The Polish Eagle Club
2 Sherwood Rise
Tel: 0115 962 4859
Everyone is welcome. We’ll there until 11pm (maybe later). It was Miriam’s wish that people brought some food and ate together so please feel free to bring what you can (vegetarian food only please – daughter’s request)
There will be a commemoration book for people to leave messages and a mic for people to share memories and stories.
I look forward to seeing you on thursday so we can all pay tribute to the very special woman Miriam was. Gone but never forgotten. Always loved & always in our hearts.
