Becky Takes the Veg Pledge

Being veggie or vegan is a personal choice, but if you’re someone who likes a roast dinner and dreams of stacked burgers, then going vegetarian for a whole month, is a real triumph of will-power!

This is the challenge that Crewe Volkswagen receptionist, Rebecca Richardson, set herself with the aim of raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Rebecca explained, “I decided to do the veg pledge for Cancer Research UK, I wanted to raise money to fund new research. For me, it’s a charity that’s very close to home; I’ve lost family and friends to cancer and am close to others who are currently fighting this horrible illness”.

“Going meat free has been a lot harder than I imagined; I initially struggled to find meat replacements, however as the days went by I found I started to almost enjoy it. I felt full of energy and much more motivated to cook healthy meals; I found it encouraged me to explore cooking and eating lots of different vegetables in new ways.

“Don’t get me wrong, there were days when I craved my favourite sausage and mash, so, I’m afraid it hasn’t made me into a veggie, I miss my sausages too much; but, I will be eating less meat in future”, added Rebecca.

As Crewe Volkswagen is part of family-owned Swansway Motor Group, Becky received £10 donation from the company towards her fund-raising efforts.
