Plant Based News – and its co-founder and director Robbie Lockie – have been honored with two awards from a leading vegan charity.

Viva! – the UK’s first vegan campaigning charity – was founded 25-years-ago by Juliet Gellatley. In that time, the organization has exposed countless examples of shocking conditions on British factory farms.

The charity celebrated its milestone birthday with a recent fundraising awards dinner, where PBN scooped the award for ‘Best Vegan News Site’ and Lockie was awarded the prestigious ‘Award for Outstanding Achievements for Veganism’ for his personal advocacy.

‘Promoting veganism’

“We are really proud to present our awards to so many people working incredibly hard, both individually and in a variety of businesses, to promote veganism. Their collective achievements are phenomenal and inspirational,” said Viva!’s founder and director, Juliet Gellatley.

Robbie Lockie added: “It was a huge honor, pleasure, and surprise to be given an award from Viva! for our work within the vegan community. When I first got involved with this community I really had no idea the impact I would be able to have using the tools at my disposal.

“I really want to thank Juliet for trusting me with the Viva! message and banner to make and create short films and content to capture the hearts and minds of tens of thousands of people. It has been a joy and a pleasure to be a part of something so important. Thank you for believing in me and us.”

Other award winners include Peter Egan, the celebrity animal rights advocate and star of Downton Abbey and entrepreneur and athlete Heather Mills.
