Joanna Lumley

Throughout a high-profile career that has made her one of the most valued and loved personalities in UK entertainment, Joanna Lumley OBE has tirelessly championed many animal causes and has been our patron for over twenty five years.

“I am thrilled with the change of name of our brilliant charity. I have been on board for so long that it was easy to forget that not everyone knew of Dr Hadwen, or what he did. The new name of 'Animal Free Research UK' says what it does on the tin; and we can look forward to attracting a whole new raft of kind and compassionate supporters. I am so very proud to be part of this wonderful organisation.”
