[PrintView] Sunday June 7th at the Sumac Centre there will be an informal memorial meeting for our late supporter, life-long peace activist, conscientious objector and vegan, David Lane [1934 2014].

David's friend & follow campaigner, Bruce Kent, honorary vice-president of CND, will join us, as will a number of people who worked alongside David in the book trade and on many campaign trails over the years.

Vegan catering will be provided Veggies Catering Campaign, whose very existence, let alone 30 years of campaigning, came about through David's constant support.

From a brief history of 50 years of Vegetarian/Vegan Campaigning in Nottingham

Remembering David Lane 1934 2014

"Since about 1962 the Nottingham Vegetarian Society, has been the local branch of the Vegetarian Society of the UK. In the late 80s it became the Nottingham Vegetarian & Vegan (veg*n) Society.

"The long-standing chair of the society, David Lane, was fundamental in helping to establish Veggies Catering Campaign and the Rainbow Centre, later to become The Sumac Centre.

Inspired by a visit to Nottingham [organised by David] by the late Kathleen Jannaway, Veggies has become closely involved with the Movement for Compassionate Living, adding sustainable living and local ecology to the many other benefits of veganism."

Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.

We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email
