Our volunteers and area representatives:

We also give thanks to our amazing team of other volunteers who help out so much with the Vegan Society’s important work.  They might help keep our website up to date, run stalls, help out at Vegan 101s, do some admin work, film vegan VIPs and so much more! Together they contribute some 500 hours of work every month. GO TEAM!
