An Unusual Request for a North Yorkshire Hamlet
Fryup, a hamlet located in the stunning North York Moors National Park, has received an unusual request from PETA. To celebrate World Vegan Day, we’re asking Fryup to change its name to Vegan Fryup.
At least one neighbouring councillor thinks it’s a good idea. Speaking to The Northern Echo about the request, Scarborough Borough Councillor Herbet Tindall, who was born in Fryup, said, “I think it would probably go down quite well – it would certainly be a first for my lifetime”.
Fryup seemed like the obvious place to launch our life-saving message because choosing a vegan fry-up lowers people’s risk of needing emergency services or losing their mobility later in life. Consuming flesh takes a terrible toll on human health, taxing your digestive system and increasing your risk of life-threatening disease. Authorities such as the British Medical Association confirm that vegetarians have lower rates of obesity, coronary heart disease and high blood pressure. With vegan sausages, “facon” and now even vegan black pudding and tofu eggs, anyone who wants to can still tuck into a full English breakfast seven days a week. And vegans don’t just help save their own lives – they also save many animals a year from immeasurable suffering on factory farms, in abattoirs and on the decks of fishing boats.
If the hamlet takes us up on our offer, we’d be thrilled to coordinate a delicious food giveaway to celebrate World Vegan Day, which takes place on 1 November.
