Vegan Athletes for Peace

/img/arc/vegan-athletes-for-peace.jpg Neil Robinson and Dean Howell, vegan former professional footballers, are undertaking a charity cycle challenge, cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats and to be completed in 9 days.

Stop press: due to a training injury Neil sustained in late April, and which meant missing training for almost 2 weeks, the Vegan Athletes For Peace cycle ride has been postponed until late June. The new start date will now be Friday the 26th June.

They are doing the cycle challenge to raise awareness of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle for the health of humans, animals, and the planet. Also, to raise funds for a variety of charities who are doing great work to bring about the healing of the planet and all who live on it.

Veggies are delighted to have been chosen as one of the 13 supported charities. We urge supporters to help to promote the event website and cycle ride through websites and social media.

Women Together - ESOL English Conversation

/wp-content/uploads/women-together-212x300.jpg Make new friends, learn new skills & practice your English!

If you are a woman in Forest Fields and would like to meet other women from your neighbourhood, come along & join us.

This group is mainly aimed at women who want to improve their English language skills, but it's open to all - doesn't matter the language you speak!

We offer different free activities, ranging from excursions and visits to craft and creative workshops.

Children are welcome at our conversation group, although we are all volunteers so unfortunately we cannot guarantee that there is an adequate number of childminders at each session (more volunteers are always welcome!).

The get together runs for two hours a week, usually on Wednesday mornings, from 10 to 12, at Sumac Centre, but some activities might happen at different locations and days, eg 29th April: Outdoor education with Wild Things Collective - meet at 9.15am - back at 3pm.

Animal Rescue Workday

Kirkby Pet Welfare is a small animal shelter attempting to tackle the desperate task of rescuing and re-homing unwanted rabbits, hamsters and other small rodents, often bred indiscriminately by the pet trade.

Nottingham Animal Rights seeks volunteers for regular workdays. It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference. The dogs at Pet Welfare are only walked once or twice a week so this is an easy and fun job that can make a positive impact on their lives. Transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham - call Lee on 07599 282851.

Brinsley Animal Rescue Open Day

/img/arc/brinsleypigs.jpg Join us raising funds for animal rescue work and the animal hospital at Brinsley Animal Rescue, a not for profit organisation, run by volunteers on vegan values, dedicated to the caring of pets, wild animals and farm animals.

Come and see the animals, meet the volunteers an browse the many stalls.

The primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals are simply ’surplus to requirements’ from the meat, dairy and egg industry. Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then the aim is to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.

As well as stalls, talks and games, there is vegan beer, vegan ice cream and food by Veggies so come over, chill out and meet the animals. Find out about regular work days with Nottingham Animal Rights.

Earth First Summer Gathering

http://earthfirst.org.uk/EF!SG15poster-small.jpg The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action - or those who want to be involved - get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what's going on, find out what's next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.

The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It's run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in!

Veggies are providing a cafe space, tuck shop & vegan cake baking workshops.

What's Still Wrong With McDonalds

For a summary of the issues surrounding the McLibel Case see the High Court Judgement and the European Court of Human Rights ruling. Also www.knowmore.org

- Strengthening autonomous networks

8 - 9 NOVEMBER 2014 THE SUMAC CENTRE, NOTTINGHAM, UK

Ideas for the gathering, such as the list of themes above, are the ideas of a small group. But we want this weekend to be created by all who participate; a space that is filled and held by everybody.

If you want to come to the gathering, then we would love your contribution to making the event happen now.

IF YOU HAVE AN IDEA FOR A WORKSHOP, WOULD LIKE TO BRING OTHER THINGS TO THE EVENT - SUCH AS FILMS TO SCREEN, MUSIC TO PLAY – PLEASE GET IN TOUCH

Veggie Month

http://www.animalaid.org.uk/images/covers/world3.gif

Go veggie!

There are many reasons to go veggie including animal welfare, health, environmental protection and cost.

If you are concerned about one or more of these issues, why not take the opportunity to try some more meat-free meals during March or take the veggie challenge? Find support from veggie campaigners in your area from Veggies Networking Directory.

If you are already veggie... go vegan!

World Day for Animals in Laboratories

http://wwail.noflag.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/xHeader21-1024x251.jpg.pagespeed.ic.X4Oh38Em8k.jpg

World Day for Laboratory Animals is a United Nations recognized day of international commemoration of the suffering and killing of millions of innocent sentient beings in laboratories throughout the world.

Campaigning organisations in the UK and across the globe, will mark World Day for Laboratory Animals, a time to reflect upon the pain and suffering caused to millions of animals all in the name of a fraudulent scientific practice - a practice that is not only is so cruel to the animals so horribly abused and killed by vivisectors but a practice that so cruelly gives false hope to those with illness and disease.

In 2015 the call is for local groups to join together in organising regional demos to mark World Day.
