On Saturday 12th July, over 360 of our supporters joined many members of the Compassion team, at the Royal Geographical Society.
We discussed the things we have achieved together and spoke about our CEO, Philip Lymbery’s, book Farmageddon and how we must end factory farming for the benefit of people, the planet and animals.
We are so thankful for all that our supporters do and we organised this day to say thank you and to show our supporters how much we appreciate you all.
As Joyce D’Silva, our Ambassador, said: “We would never have been able to ban veal crates throughout the EU, without you. We wouldn’t have seen the ban of the barren battery cage for egg-laying hens without you. Nor the partial sow stall ban.
“You made these things happen and for that we are so grateful.”
Dil Peeling, our Director of Campaigns gave an inspirational presentation on all that he and his team do; while Isabel Oakeshott, co-author of Farmageddon, gave an honest talk on how her perspective had changed. How the originally impenetrable phrase of ‘factory farming’ is now so tangible and present in her life.
Our CEO, Philip Lymbery stated: “Thank you to everyone who has come here today. Particularly when it is such a sunny day and you could be free-ranging outside!”
After speaking from the lectern, Philip met many of those who had made the trip to London. He said: “It was a pleasure to meet so many of our supporters personally, we’re all so grateful for their fantastic support.”
The proceedings were chaired by our long-time Trustee, Sir David Madden.
Once again, a huge thank you to all who attended, all who support Compassion and take action to help farm animals lead a higher-welfare and better life.
If you were not able to attend our Supporter Day, please help us, by taking action to stop the EBRD from financing intensive farming, using taxpayers’ money.
