Vegan Campaigns

For almost a decade, Vegan Campaigns (and later London Vegan Campaigns) organised free food events, vegan outreach, and demonstrations in the capital.

From 2009 to 2013, I volunteered for the organisation's Vegan Pledge (the world's first - inspired by an article in the national press about someone trying a vegan diet for 30 days). Initially, a 'Vegan Buddy' (an adviser to aspiring vegans), I took on more responsibility each year - co-ordinating fellow mentors from 2011, and chairing the overall event in 2013.

The organisation has been less active since 2014, with key members moving to different parts of the county (and even different countries), and focusing on different projects. Its Vegan Pledge is now incorporated into The Vegan Approach, founded by two of those key members.

Please note that Vegan Campaigns has always been a grassroots volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation, and has no connection to the private limited company that adopted the same name more than a decade later.
