PETA Holds First-Ever Humanitarian Awards Event in Britain

On 28 June 2006, a constellation of compassionate stars showed up to party with PETA at Stella’s boutique in Mayfair, London.

Pamela Anderson joined PETA President Ingrid Newkirk and PETA Vice President Dan Mathews to give Humanitarian Awards to some of the latest movers and shakers to support PETA’s campaigns against cruelty to animals.

Sweeping the super-siblings category, Stella, who narrated our undercover fur-farm investigation, was given an award for her “kick ass” contribution to animal-friendly fashion, while her sister Mary McCartney, who shot the provocative PETA anti-fur ads of both singer Sophie Ellis Bextor and rocker Tommy Lee, was honoured for devoting her time and considerable talent to animal rights.

Actor Gillian Anderson – known to legions of adoring fans for her starring role in The X-Files as well as for her critically acclaimed role in the BBC’s Bleak House – went home with a Humanitarian Award for putting the truth out there about cruelty to animals in Covance’s laboratories and at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
