World Vegan Day | Veggies
With lots of things happening everywhere to raise awareness.
The latest newsletter from Exeter Friends for Animals has details of up-coming events:
Time for another round-up of forthcoming events...
As you probably know, November is World Vegan
Month, and we'll be kicking it off with a street stall on World Vegan
Day itself (1 November). Fairfoods will be providing their tempting food samples
for passers-by to try, and we'll have all the usual information and recipes, so
if you're not already vegan or have friends and family who would like to give it
a go, this is a good place to start! Animal Aid also run a Vegan Challenge
throughout November for the vegan-curious, and other organisations such as Viva!
and the Vegan Society of course offer similar schemes throughout the year - just
visit their websites to find out more and sign up.
SOUTH WEST CHRISTMAS WITHOUT CRUELTY FESTIVAL
The big event is
creeping up already! Nearly 50 stalls this year, plus the usual cafe, world
music choir, talks and even a comedy show fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe. A
great day out and ideal for getting all your Christmas shopping done early!
