Donald and Dorothy aren’t among the notable people listed by the church where their bodies are buried. No headstones mark their graves.
But North Yorkshire vegan Patricia Fairey recently informed me that there is a blue plaque in memory of Donald.
Round, blue plaques appear on the outer walls of British buildings where noted people lived or spent time. One has been placed at the former Doncaster Road School in South Yorkshire to celebrate Donald, who attended school there. It was placed in 2019, the 75th anniversary year of The Vegan Society.
Donald shines on as a core figure among the 25 original members of The Vegan Society.
Find out more about how and when this plaque installation happened. I hope you’ll find the story as uplifting as I did. It’s a tribute to a key animal liberationist, and to the vegan commitment we ourselves have made.
Love and liberation,
