Rachel writes: "I am volunteering for Sounds on the Downs which will be held Wednesday 13th June this year at the University of Nottingham.
Sounds on the Downs is a relaxed, environmentally sound festival, thriving with music and various arts and stalls. The team would like to invite your charity to the event as it would be great to have a local charity on the day informing about the issues you deal with and we hope that both the charity and the public would benefit from this.
If you are interested in this event we would be happy to provide you with a table for a stall (or if you need more space this can be looked into). You can provide information etc. or forms of entertainment/workshops, it is completely up to you.
Please let me know if you are interested. I look forward to hearing from you." email Rachel

Veggies Climate Change Campaigns
To get to this event, 3.2 miles from our Sumac Centre base, Veggies will emit approx 4kg CO2
However by helping an estimated 300 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 600 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. carbon calculation references
Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth. We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, ‘Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals’. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email email@example.com.
