Big names for a big campaign
Some of Britain’s best-loved vegans support Veganuary, either as Ambassadors, through creative projects or just by sharing our message.
Comedians Romesh Ranganathan, Sara Pascoe, John Bishop and Russell Brand have all supported our work, while EastEnders’ Kellie Bright and Emmerdale’s James Moore have this year joined our incredible list of Ambassadors alongside Evanna Lynch, Melody Kane, Chris Packham, George Monbiot, Sarah-Jane Crawford, Peter Egan and Jasmine Harman.
We also have the support of some world-class plant-based athletes, including Anthony Mullally, Hector Bellerin and Dustin Watten, and two renowned food innovators, Derek Sarno and Tammy Fry, are also Veganuary Ambassadors. This year, we are thrilled to be joined by Ecotricity founder and owner of Forest Green Rovers Football Club, Dale Vince and Member of Parliament Kerry McCarthy.
Is anyone famous taking part in 2020?
They are actually! Deborah Meaden (Dragons’ Den), Kellie Bright (EastEnders), Jane Fallon (author), Susie Dent (Countdown), Janey Lee Grace (Radio 2), Kate Thistleton (Radio 1), Rebecca Callard (The Detectorists) and Louisa Connolly-Burnham (Wolfblood) have all signed up!
What do participants get?
They receive daily emails throughout January with all the inspirational and practical information they need, from recipes, eating out tips and best places to shop. They also receive a free copy of our celebrity recipe e-book, as well as access to our closed Facebook group where the Class of 2020 will meet, trade experiences and support one another.
