Fiona Oakes – For the Animals

Fiona Oakes – For the Animals

I thought I’d share with you this short film about Fiona Oakes.

For those of you who don’t know Fiona Oakes, she runs Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary and in her spare time manages to win marathons and set world records. The film is about her, what drives her, the sanctuary and her running.

It’s beautifully shot with some lovely scenes of a few of the over 400 animals in her care.

Fiona is an inspiration to many vegan runners and I hope that you will find a little inspiration watching this film.

  • What a wonderful woman! My 10 yr old is a vegetarian pig lover and she just watched the video with me. I know it won’t be long before she goes vegan. Very inspiring indeed!

    • She is amazing, and so down to earth too.
