Dear John

Their Christmas Wish has returned for 2020, this time supported by a billboard campaign! Read on to find out more; plus campaign updates and Christmas products in our online shop.

----------------------
WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY! ARE YOU DIRECTOR MATERIAL?
We’re delighted to announce an exciting opportunity to lead the Animal Aid team as Director.

Working with staff members and the Council, the Director will:
* Provide strategic planning and leadership, implement the vision and campaigns of Animal Aid, and raise awareness of the Society’s work against animal suffering.
* Represent the Society in a variety of forums, at conferences, events, media interviews and by meeting with other organisations or parliamentarians.
* Oversee all aspects of Animal Aid’s campaigns, education work, merchandise and fundraising - both public-facing and internally.
* Have a thorough knowledge of animal rights issues, our current campaigns and be committed to the objectives of the organisation and be in tune with Animal Aid’s ethical, vegan stance.

For more information please contact [email protected]

Closing Date: 9th December.

----------------------
HAVE YOU SPOTTED OUR ADVERTS?
We’ve had billboards and bus stop adverts up in various towns and cities
throughout the UK, encouraging the public to have a cruelty-free Christmas! They
feature rescued turkeys who live at The Retreat Animal Rescue as well as photos
from one of our undercover investigations, exposing the horrific conditions most
Christmas turkeys will spend their short lives.

You can find them in Tunbridge Wells, London, Plymouth, Belfast, Norwich,
Southampton and Edinburgh. They’ll be running until the middle of the week so be
sure to let us know if you spot any of them!

HAVING A VEGAN CHRISTMAS
It has never been easier to have a vegan Christmas! This year supermarkets have
gone above and beyond to ensure everybody can enjoy a plant-based feast
(see [link removed]), but you
can also make your own amazing vegan Christmas food. In fact, we’re here to help!

Sign up for free to support our Their Christmas Wish campaign and you’ll receive a
copy of our Have a Very Vegan Christmas recipe book!

FESTIVE ANIMAL DISPLAYS
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a large impact on UK captive reindeer events,
since banning large gatherings effectively resulted in no parades or any
associated activity which encourage people to congregate en-masse in town
centres or in indoor spaces. This gives many of the reindeer a break this year
from being transported up and down the country and held in pens under bright
lights to be prodded by excitable and noisy revellers.

Please take a look at our latest reindeer campaign update: 'Covid-19, reindeer
displays and alternative ways to spread Christmas cheer':

MOUNTING EVIDENCE AGAINST THE USE OF THE WHIP
Two new studies from Australia on the use of the whip in horse racing show that
the whip is ineffective and that the whip does, indeed, cause pain. Animal Aid
has written to MPs, asking them to take action and put pressure on the racing
industry to ban the whip.

Please help by contacting your MP straight away:

IMPRISONED BIRDS STILL NEED YOUR HELP
Across the country and out of sight, vast industrial game farms often keep
pheasants and partridges, who are used as ‘breeding stock’, in oppressive,
barren metal cages. Their offspring will be reared and blasted from the sky for
‘sport’.

Help raise awareness by signing this petition and sharing it on social media:

INTENSIVE PIG FARM APPLICATION IN DONCASTER
Please object to the creation of a new intensive pig farm in Spotborough,
Doncaster. If this farm gains permission, pigs will likely be confined in a
barren environment with no outdoor access, except the day they are trucked to
the slaughterhouse.
