Janet Shapiro (1939-2023)

We regret to announce that our friend and comrade Janet Shapiro has passed away.

She was a long-term NATFHE activist at the University of North London and a stalwart member of the UCU London Retired Members branch following her retirement. She represented the branch, as well as her local Hornsey pensioners’ group, as a delegate to the National Pensioners’ Convention and was active in many other campaigns.

Celebration of Janet’s life for her friends, family and fellow campaigners.
Sunday, 13 August, 15:00 – 17:00, Lauderdale House, Highgate Hill London N6 5HG

Janet’s children (Laura and Ian Shapiro) have arranged an event for all who knew and loved Janet to share our memories and say goodbye together.

There will be Klezmer violin music played by Ilana Cravitz as well as tributes from friends, neighbours, family and fellow campaigners.

Everyone is welcome. There will be tea and cake so please sign up on the eventbrite link if you possibly can. This will help Laura and Ian work out numbers for catering. The link will be available until the 10th August. However, if you can’t sign up in time please do just turn up on the day.
