Founding farmer, David Bragg, awarded OBE

Congratulations to David Bragg who has been appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the New Year 2019 Honours List.

David was awarded an OBE in recognition of his contribution to Send a Cow which he helped found in 1988 while he was a dairy farmer in Devon. Outraged at EU milk quotas, which were forcing them to slaughter healthy dairy cows, and in response to an appeal from Uganda for milk, David embarked on a project, which was set to become an innovative and practical charity.

After setting up the charity, David became Programme Manager for 13 years, overseeing our projects in Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Kenya. Today, he is still heavily involved as a volunteer Ambassador, raising funds and spreading awareness of our work across the UK. He has been an instrumental figure in Send a Cow’s history and we’re thrilled that his hard work and commitment has been recognised.
