As we embark on our most ambitious campaign ever, we're thrilled to join forces with some of the nation's most loved and respected public figures to help make history.
Celebrities from the music, entertainment, sporting fields and political parties have shown their compassion and support for our campaign.
One of the world's greatest, most inspirational concert pianists, winner of the 1970 Tchaikovsky piano competition and favorite pianist of the late Queen Mother John Lill CBE supports the science based organisation For Life on Earth (FLOE).
National theatre actor and Downton Abbey star Peter Egan is a greatly admired and invaluable supporter of our campaign. Mr Egan is helping us block plans for B&K Universal's expansion plans to breed Beagles and ferrets for cruel experiments. Mr Egan has advertised our campaign on the ITV website, and has promoted our petition calling for animal experimenters to justify their science claims in properly moderated, public scientific debates with leading medical experts in their field - who work to abandon the use animals in human medical research because of their known scientific failure.
BBC presenter Mark Radcliff
BBC presenter, Mark Radcliff was one of the first people to support the call for B&K Universal Beagle breeding plans who lost their battle in expansion plans to breed up to 2000 Beagles for experiments. This support highlighted our call for animal experimenters to justify their science claims in properly moderated, public scientific debates with leading medical experts in their field - who work to abandon the use animals in human medical research because of their known scientific failure.
Human rights campaigner
Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell has been one of our earliest and most well known supporters for both the campaigns we look after here at No to Animal Experiments: Save the Harlan Beagles and Oppose B&K Universal. We are extremely grateful for the support that Peter Tatchell has showered upon us, enabling us to reach many thousands of compassionate and caring members of society.
Comedian and actor Ricky Gervais has supported us from day one! He made a huge difference when we were in the early stages of defeating plans against B&K Universal animal breeders; enjoy an early tweet Mr Gervais sent our media reporter at the time.
Caroline Lucas MP
"Animal tests are outdated, cruel and inefficient, yet the number of animals being used in UK research is actually increasing - despite a pledge by the Coalition Government to reduce it. The majority of drugs deemed successful after testing on animals go on to fail in clinical trials, either because they do not produce the same therapeutic effects in people or because they are too toxic to use on human patients".
