Our member Ann Johnson won this year’s competition to design a Christmas card for the small but highly active Scottish campaigning organisation OneKind.

The design features a fox in a winter scene, collaged from recycled paper. A pack of cards costs £4.99.

All proceeds from sales go to OneKind. If you send cards at Christmas, you might like to visit their website shop to see the range.

OneKind’s recent campaigning successes have included:

Hedgehogs – Thousands of hedgehogs were to be killed in the Uist islands to protect the eggs of ground-nesting birds. OneKind worked as part of the Uist Hedgehog Rescue coalition to change government policy and ensure that captured animals were translocated instead.

Circus animals – Following over a decade of campaigning by OneKind, Scotland became the first country in the UK to introduce a ban on the use of wild animals in travelling circuses.

Exotic pets – OneKind investigations revealed the growing exotic pet trade in Scotland, forcing the Government to commit to a complete review of how the industry is regulated. Farm animals – Our campaign to bring in CCTV in Scottish abattoirs resulted in a commitment by the Scottish Government to introduce compulsory video recording in all relevant areas of slaughterhouses in Scotland.

Mountain hares – OneKind exposed the culling of mountain hares both for sport and so-called disease prevention, securing a commitment from the Scottish Government to improve protection for this iconic species. In the meantime, the snaring of mountain hares has effectively been banned.
