England, December 6, 1999 - In honor of the significant contribution
that Lady Linda McCartney made to the cause of vegetarianism,
the International Vegetarian Union awarded her posthumously
the Mankar Trophy.
Her husband Sir Paul McCartney happily accepted the original
Mankar Trophy along with a replica that he will keep.
In 2002 Sir Paul donated some funds to the Vegetarian Society UK
to enable participants from developing countries to attend the IVU World Vegetarian Congress, being organised by VSUK in Edinburgh, Scotland. Some leaders of African vegetarian societies were thus able to attend.

We feel better about ourselves and better about the animals,
knowing we're not contributing to their pain.
