THE CAMPAIGN TO DATE
In 2015, David Cameron pledged he would attempt to repeal the 2004 Hunting Act and thus legalise fox hunting, deer hunting and hare coursing.
In response we launched the campaign to #Keeptheban – a grassroots movement designed to preserve and strengthen the ban on fox hunting.
2015 – We grew our online presence – amassing over 100,000 followers and reaching almost half a million people on a weekly basis with our messages.
2016– In September 2016 we joined ‘Stop Hunting Fox Cubs’ at a demonstration in London to hand in a petition to DEFRA and the National Crime Agency, demanding tighter controls to ensure that the illegal act of ‘cubbing’ does not take place.
2017- This year our campaign stepped up a level as we put pressure on Theresa May not to repeal the Hunting Act as well as the campaign to end ‘trail hunting’ on National Trust land.
2018- Fundraising and online presence grows significantly
