We are delighted to welcome our special guest Fiona Oakes to the first ever vegan festival in Aberdeen. Fiona Oakes is a British marathon runner, who holds three world records for marathon running.
In 2013, she won both the Antarctic Ice Marathon and the North Pole Marathon. She runs despite losing a knee cap from an illness when she was 17. Fiona has been vegan since 6 years old. She runs Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary and is a patron of the Captive Animals Protection Society.
Fiona works long hours on a sanctuary she runs almost single-handedly, on which she cares for 400 animals including horses, pigs, sheep and dogs. She also fundraise’s for the sanctuary, for which the food bill is over £5000 per month, and for other animal issues. Typical working days start before dawn and end around 8pm on her sanctuary in Essex, UK.
