CAMPAIGNING on vegan issues has earned a Redditch resident an award nomination alongside a former Beatle.
Kevin White is one of ten people to be in the running for best individual achievement of the decade as part of Vegfest's tenth anniversary awards, celebrating individuals who have changed the face of the UK in terms of putting the vegan lifestyle on the map.
He is joined in the nominations by Sir Paul McCartney, Vegan Society CEO Jasmijn De Boo and elite athlete Fiona Oakes.
Kevin had been organising vegan fairs for over ten years and founded Midlands Vegan Campaigns in 2007, now co-ordinating several fairs every year across the region.
He said: "I'm delighted to be nominated alongside so many well known vegan ambassadors, being nominated itself is a real achievement.
"Becoming vegan changed my life for the better beyond all recognition, and helped animals and the planet in the process.
"Now I've made it my mission to promote all the wonderful benefits of veganism, and it's enormously rewarding to see curiosity in the plant-based lifestyle snowballing, to the extent where we struggle to find venues big enough for our events."
The results will be announced at London Olympia this Saturday.
