Justine Simons in Antony Gormley's "One & Other" for MHMT
Thursday 24th September, 2009: Justine Simons, Cultural Strategy Manager for the Greater London Authority and friend of the MHMT, took her place on Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth as part of Antony Gormley’s project, “One & Other”.
Justine used the opportunity to raise awareness of the Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust. She wore an MHMT t-shirt while she did yoga for an hour, joined by her teacher and a group at the foot of the plinth. She raised money for the MHMT through her JustGiving page
Miriam practised yoga herself for many years. Justine's sponsored yoga activity is therefore very personal to Miriam, and the fact that there was a group joining in at the bottom of the plinth reflects Miriam's inclusive attitude. Mim's family are particularly touched that Justine chose to use her time on the Fourth Plinth in a way Miriam would have enjoyed and appreciated.
