Eve Branson's story
As a child, Eve showed signs of the entrepreneurial drive - something which had been passed down through the family, coupled with a longing for freedom and excitement. Eve’s lifelong passion was writing and in addition to her memoir, Mum’s The Word, (based on her personal diaries), she wrote articles, essays, novels, plays, scripts, and children’s stories. Eve also published travel articles and historical accounts and a children’s book dedicated to her 11 grandchildren, entitled Sarky Puddleboat (AuthorHouse 2010).
In 2005, Eve founded the Eve Branson Foundation, an organisation that provides income-producing projects for girls in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. In 2008, at 84-years-old, Eve became the first mother in history to have a spaceship named after her - Virgin Galactic's mothership, VMS Eve.
Eve sadly passed away from COVID-19 in January 2021.
