Telephone: 0800 112 4272 (Freephone) or 020 7219 4272
Westminster Hall is the oldest building on the Parliamentary estate. What makes it such an astonishing building is not simply its great size and the magnificence of its roof, but its central role in British history. In and around the Hall, grew up the major institutions of the British state: Parliament, the law courts and various government offices.
Closely involved in the life of the nation since the 11th century, a journey through the Hall's past is a journey through 900 fascinating years of our history.

Animals used to make fur included mink, blue fox, silver fox, musquash, rabbit, beaver, wolf, coyote, chinchilla and squirrel. Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols introduced an ethical fur free policy. However in September last year the department store chain decided to drop its fur-free policy. It is vitally important to take action on this, if Harvey Nichols continues to sell fur, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow.

Acomb Rabbit Rescue Adoptions
Acomb, York North Yorkshire. North England
Acomb Rabbit Rescue is a small non-profit rescue run from our home in Acomb, York. We take in unwanted rabbits and give them a chance of finding a new home.
All rabbits are neutered and vaccinated for myxomatosis and VHD before adoption. We ask for a minimum of a 6x2 hutch with permanently attached 6x4 run (or the indoor equivalent of 36 square feet) Of course, the bigger the better!
A home visit will be required before adoption, so we can match the right bun with the right owner. We only rehome buns to live in pairs or groups with other buns.
We ask for a minimum donation of £50 to adopt a rabbit. This goes towards the neutering and vaccination costs.We do not breed any rabbits. Please take a look at the rabbits available for adoption on our website http://www.acombrabbitrescue.org.uk/

(Above is just a few of the scores of beaches. Sign up for yours pls. )
(MCS) is the voice for everyone who loves the sea. We work to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened sea life before it is lost forever. See our upcoming September Beach Clean & become involved. http://www.mcsuk.org/beachwatch/
See all of the events year round.
Beachwatch is our national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme - helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline. Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. Litter on our beaches is hazardous to people so we all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own & be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!
Our wonderful seas, shores and wildlife are under threat. Almost nowhere in UK seas is marine wildlife safe from harm. We need to establish vital marine protected areas where wildlife can recover and flourish.
Levels of beach litter have doubled over the last decade. MCS works to clear our seas of the rising tide of rubbish that is so dangerous to sea life, including seabirds, whales and dolphins. 88% of Europe’s fish stocks are overfished or depleted. MCS works to reduce the overfishing which is devastating the life in our seas, and promotes sustainable seafood alternatives. Our work ensures that the sea’s rich wildlife can be restored, fish stocks grow more plentiful, and our beaches and seawater become cleaner.

'Trashed' Film w/ Jeremy Irons
This very important film looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land, and sea by waste. It reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians, and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution.
Usually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. UK Screening Enquiries----Pls contact
