Maw the Magnificent

Published on April 24, 2017

Doug Maw, our magnificent marathon runner, took to the streets of London on Sunday 23 April 2017 and gave his all to replace the use of animals in medical research.

Completing the 26.2 miles in an incredible 4.03 hours and smashing his fundraising target Doug said:

 “There is no need for animals to be used in research as many more effective and accurate methods are now available to us.”

Known as the Fiverman, Doug, has also been taking on the Bank of England to remove animal products from the new £5 note.

“The Bank is currently consulting on the future production of bank notes as a direct result of my campaign. I urge people to engage with the consultation and give their considered views.”

You can still sponsor Doug at his online Fundraising page or by texting DOUG45 £5 to 70070 to sponsor him £5.
