Edward Bourne

Teddy spent his working life as a commercial property lawyer at the international law firm, Clifford Chance. He has also been a trustee of the RSPCA Central London Branch, the Peabody Trust, and the Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust. He is Electoral Officer for British Fencing, and until late 2012 was also Chair of the Disciplinary and Grievance Panels for that organisation.

When he retired, Teddy wanted to undertake voluntary work for animal welfare, a cause that he had been passionate about since his teens. He had long admired Compassion for our highly rational approach, based on thorough research and carefully targeted lobbying and campaigning. He therefore decided to offer us his services, and later joined the Board.
