Vegan Events Team at Farplace Animal Rescue
Kerri & Bethany above.
This is our events team of Kerri, Bethany and Gareth.
Kerri is our ever-smiling energetic Head of Events with a personality that wants you to have a great event every time. This Geordie lass with the big smile joined the Farplace team in 2016. Kerri promotes a healthy vegan lifestyle and has helped to establish Newcastle Vegan Runners. She is former chairperson of vegan runners UK and still a very active runner. Always thinking of ways to improve the events, she will go the extra mile for every visitor, stall holder and sponsor. She is allergic to her rescue spaniel so resigned to forever sneezing due to her new family member. She loves exercise, elephants, bears and she likes wine, Gin, pizza and Indian food. She watches action and cheesy films to unwind and always loves to laugh and have fun.
Bethany is our amazingly organised Vegan Events Manager. Her talents lie in procedures and systems to get everything ship shape. Bethany will go the extra mile to help all stall holders and visitors. She is a super star Mathematic and who loves cats! She has two rescue cats, Finn and Roman and I am pretty sure she will have a house full soon. She joined the Farplace team 2017 and has made Kerri very happy by loving wine and Gin too. She plays Xbox to unwind
Gareth is co-founder and Chair of the Trustees of Farplace Animal Rescue and creator of all of the festivals, so you have him to blame for all the events. He shares his home with 150+ rescued animals needing new homes and 600+ board games and is a proud ageing hippie and geek extraordinaire. He thinks ALL sci fi is amazing, from Star Trek to Lexx, Battlestar Galactica to Babylon 5. He has been vegan for 9 years for the animals and created the Talk To Me I’m Vegan Campaign. His favourite animal is the humpback whale and he loves vegan junk food FAR too much. Carcasonne and Small World are his favourite board games and Brass Castle beer is his favourite drink. Look for the loudest pair of trousers at a festival and that is usually Gareth. He thinks EVERY stall holder, sponsor, speaker, volunteer and visitor to all the festivals are amazing people because you all are.
We are all there to help – catch any of us at any of the festivals and we will do everything we can to help you.
