More about the co-founders

As a businessman, Matthew wanted to use his skills to contribute to the animal rights movement and developed the idea for Veganuary to inspire and support others to go vegan for the month of January.

Jane’s life as an English teacher changed the day she met a vegan in Matthew (who’s now her husband!). She went from vegetarian to vegan and swapped her Shakespeare texts for the Animal Activist Handbook. On a mission to reduce animal suffering, they founded Veganuary.


Matthew and Jane will be giving this interesting talk at 4pm on Sunday on the Stage, located in the Main Foyer on the G/F of the Brighton Centre.

Their joint talk will be preceded by the Veganuary party which offers plenty of socialising opportunities with plenty of vegan snacks and other entertainment in store.
