Last summer, I visited one of my local sanctuaries – ‘F.R.I.E.N.D’ in Kent, England. I was lucky enough to have a tour with owner Mark, who runs the sanctuary with his partner, Marion. I met all the animals and left feeling inspired by how this couple have devoted their lives to rescuing them. You can read about my day at F.R.I.E.N.D in my article for Your Daily Vegan by clicking here.
Today I was sadly informed that Marion had passed away. Marion was an incredible advocate for animals, she worked tirelessly to spread the vegan message, and provide a safe sanctuary for the animals that needed it the most. You can view a message from Mark about the extremely sad passing of his wife here.
F.R.I.E.N.D now needs your support more than ever to carry on the fantastic work they do. You can donate towards a lasting legacy for Marion and to help towards running the sanctuary here.
On behalf of animals everywhere – thank you, Marion, for being a fantastic animal advocate and for changing the lives of so many farm animals that were doomed to be victims of the meat industry. Rest in Peace.
