“I am thrilled that Naturewatch Foundation has asked me to become a Patron. As an animal charity they tackle all the issues that I care so passionately about and I am looking forward to working with them and my fellow Patrons to raise awareness of the devastating cruelty that humans are prepared to inflict upon our fellow creatures. Please join us on this journey… by working together we can change the world and put an end to the needless suffering that countless animals are forced to endure. Stand up and be counted!”
