Celia Hammond: Hammond was a successful fashion model in the 1960s, working for Vogue Magazine, notably forming a close working relationship with photographer Terence Donovan. At first happy to model fur, she later became concerned about the cruelty of the fur trade and took a stand against fur. Celia had a long relationship with the guitar master Jeff Beck around 1968~1970s. In 1986 she founded the Celia Hammond Animal Trust with the aim of opening a low cost neutering clinic to control the feral animal population.
