Led Zeppelin star's sister becomes Fraserburgh patron



Deborah Bonham, who has joined the Fraserburgh-based Willows Animal Sanctuary with her husband Peter Bullick, is the sister of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John.

And she is also an acclaimed singer-songwriter in her own right, and animal rights campaigner.

Willows, which is the largest organisation of its kind in Aberdeenshire, already has the support of former "Free" vocalist, Paul Rodgers and Cynthia Kereluk Rodgers.

And now they have been joined by Deborah, whose 2014 album Spirit gained glowing international reviews.



Deborah and her husband - whose guitar licks can be heard on his wife's work and many other tracks - have previously rescued animals of their own, including four ex-racehorses.

She said: "Peter and I are absolutely thrilled to become patrons of this amazing charity.

"I have always had a strong love for Scotland, as did my mother and father. We often had family holidays there when we were young, so I have a lot of happy memories.

"I have since had the pleasure of touring Scotland with Nazareth and [as a] solo [artiste] and they have always been the most incredible shows with the most incredible audiences."

Deborah added: "It makes total sense to me to be involved with a Scottish charity and give something back for the welcome and love I've been shown there.

"We need charities like Willows who connect animals with people, especially animals and people who haven't had the greatest start in life.

"If we can play a part in this worthy cause, in any way we can, it will be our absolute honour".
