Tony Benn 1925-2014

We are deeply honoured and proud that Tony Benn was our Patron for 9 years. He was a passionate advocate for Safer Medicines’ belief that medicine should focus on humans rather than animals. His support for us included hosting the launch of our film in the House of Commons in 2007 and presenting our petition to 10 Downing Street in 2011 (pictured here with Caroline Lucas MP). He leaves an enduring legacy of inspiration and encouragement to change the world for the better, the aim to which he devoted his life.
