At AI York we were saddened to hear of the sudden death of our colleague Jill Pratt this summer. Jill was a stalwart Amnesty member and a lifelong supporter and advocate of human rights. She was also a good friend. Few who knew her will forget her subtle humour, her loyalty and support. We were fortunate when she joined us here in York after the death of her husband, Garth. Huddersfield’s loss was our gain. Our best wishes have been sent to her family.
