Donate in memory of Carol Baker

Carol Baker, born in Darlaston in 1946 and a graduate of Leeds University, supported radical causes all her life, including the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. She raised three children single-handedly whilst teaching French and German full-time. Carol had an affinity for children. There was always an open door at her house for her children’s family.  Her desire to support and protect children led to her close involvement with CND. Carol was secretary of the Walsall branch of CND in the 1980s, and took part in the protest at Greenham Common. She played a major role in exposing the illegal transport of nuclear waste through Bescot Station in Walsall. She never stopped campaigning for social justice and inspired her children and their friends to challenge and question the powerful.
