Stamford Today: News, Sport, Jobs, Property, Cars, Entertainments & More
Only 15 years of age an already he has award winning websites and a vegetarian guide to Rutland! What a star!
Stamford Today: News, Sport, Jobs, Property, Cars, Entertainments & More: "Since he first became aware of animal rights issues and gave up eating meat seven months ago, the Uppingham Community College pupil has done all he can for the cause.
He campaigns against animal experimentation, intensive farming and bloodsports, and supports wildlife conservation, animal rescue and welfare organisations. In that time he has also lobbied the Prime Minister, set up library displays, become involved with street stalls and written articles for vegetarian publications.
And after giving up dairy products in March to become a fully-fledged vegan, Sam began working on a guide to vegetarian food in Rutland.
The newly published handbook, launched both in print and on line, is designed to help fellow veggies make the most of the county.
Sam, of Braunston Road, Knossington, said: 'The idea was also to make shops, restaurants and businesses think about what they are offering to vegetarians and vegans, and to help promote the area to the vegetarian community.'
He said he was pleased with the response and hopes the guide will grow. An internet version of it is available at www.vegetarianrutland.co.uk. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org"
