A FORMER Arrow Vale High School student stripped off in public to encourage people to ditch meat from their diets.
Loretta Hope was covered in barbecue sauce and laid out on a giant plate beneath a banner reading ‘Try to relate to who’s on your plate - Go Vegan’.
The 22-year-old wore just flesh coloured underwear for the stunt in Manchester to raise awareness ahead of World Vegan Month in November and encourage people to take PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) 30 day pledge to go vegan.
Loretta, who grew up in Winyates, said: “All animals are made of the same flesh, blood and bone, so when it comes to suffering, there is no difference between a cow, a chicken, a dog and any other animal.
“Chickens aren’t nuggets, and pigs aren’t pork chops - they’re intelligent beings who deserve respect.
“With all the delicious mock meats and faux dairy products available these days, there’s never been a better time to go vegan.”
