In memory of Isabel

Isabel Taylor

Gary and Ingrid Taylor will be attempting to complete a 70 mile stretch of the SW Coastal Path over seven days in early June to raise funds for The Farm Animal Sanctuary in memory of their 16 year old daughter, Isabel, who sadly died in September 2011.

Isabel was a committed Vegan who held very strong beliefs regarding all forms of cruelty to animals. She constantly signed up to and supported all manner of campaigns championed by VIVA and various other animal welfare organisations.

Isabel's adoration of animals started early and when she as only 11 help set up a guinea pig sanctuary complete with it’s own website, called The Guinea Garden. They soon had as many guineas as they could cope with and it is still going strong today. Testament to her determination and enthusiasm.

Isabel often talked about having her own larger animal sanctuary “like the one on the VIVA website” she would say, but sadly that will now never materialise. So, as a way keeping Isabel’s memory and ambition alive Gary and Ingrid are helping to raise funds for the sanctuary.

Gary and Ingrid leave Minehead on Sunday 3rd June and arrive at Barnstaple Fri 8th June 2012, a distance of about 70 miles. If you would like to help Gary and Ingrid to help the sanctuary then you can donate in one of three ways:

  • Donate using BT MyDonate which ensures that every penny donated goes to the charity as the administration and running costs of the site are met by BT as part of their commitment to the community. https://mydonate.bt.com/events/isabel/67654
  • Send a cheque to Gary Taylor - 31 Elley Green, Neston, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 9TX
  • Help fundraise by downloading a sponsorship form.

Thank you.
