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.

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 80’s 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."
