http://www.animalaid.org.uk/images/photos/cwc3.jpgAnimal Aid's Christmas Fayre is like no other. The huge range of cruelty-free items on offer means that you can do all your Christmas shopping in one place; and banish your hunger with Catering by Veggies


10am - 5pm at Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, London W8 (opposite High Street Kensington tube station).

Veggies will be doing tea & coffee, hopefully from early on for stall holders and will run an express queue for stall holders too. If there are enough of us we might even do a tea trolly service around the hall. Can you help with this?

Come and join in the fun at Animal Aid’s 14th Annual Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre at Kensington Town Hall, on Sunday 2nd December, from 10.00 until 17.00. This is our 30th Anniversary year, so help us celebrate this milestone in style.

Veteran politician, campaigner and Animal Aid patron, Tony Benn, will be visiting the Fayre. He will be showing his support for Animal Aid’s campaigns and saying a few inspiring words about the fight against exploitation and cruelty.

There will be more than 80 stands all promoting charities, campaign groups and ethical traders who are trying to make a real difference in the world. Have a wonderful shopping spree safe in the knowledge that no products have been tested on animals or include any animal ingredients. Help animals, the environment, and reduce your carbon footprint, by purchasing goods which have made the least impact on our planet in their production. Goods on sale include chocolates, cruelty-free toiletries and cosmetics, non-leather boots and shoes, recycled and fair-trade goods, environmentally-friendly clothing, plus seasonal gifts and cards.

This year we have some new caterers to join our regulars of Shambhu’s Kitchen and Veggies. Savour the delights of a wonderful Mediterranean cuisine from The Indian Kitchen and the fantastic flavours of the Caribbean with Rainforest Creations. Try delicious samples of vegan foods from Redwood Foods and Beanie’s.

In addition to the wonderful vegan food, enjoy lectures, videos, a live auction of celebrity items, and even the kids are catered for with face-painting, a children’s workshop and creche. For your entertainment we have a fantastic Press-ups Competition – so do take part.

Not forgetting the amazing vegan contortionist “Rubber Ritchie” who has come to fame around the world, working flexible hours to make ends meet! He did not discover this talent, but nurtured it through a whole-food vegan diet, clean living and years of daily practice.

Veggies Climate Change Campaigns

To get to this event Veggies will emit approx 160kg CO2 (total distance: 131 miles each way - route).

However by helping an estimated 500 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 1000 kg CO2

If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life, they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources.

Estimate statistics:
  • Diesel fuel: 2.68kg CO2/litre; 4-5mls/ltr; 50-70 kg/100ml (LILO Handbook)
  • Cooking gas: Butane: 1.74kg CO2/kg; Propane:1.95kg CO2/kg (as above)
  • 1.5 tonnes CO2 saved annually by a vegan diet (4kg/person/day) (New Scientist);
  • Livestock industry produces 100 million tonnes methane each year (FAO, as below)
  • Methane is 23 times more harmful to the climate than C02 (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization).
  • Could meat be murder for the environment (RSSL's Food e-News quoting New Scientist).
