F.R.I.E.N.D. Farmed Animal Rescue in Kent provide a permanent life-long home for abused, unwanted and orphaned farmed animals. About 150 animals, including pigs, cows, goats, geese, sheep, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, ferrets and a horse enjoy as natural a life as possible in the heart of the Kent countryside.
We have volunteer days where people come up and help do jobs around the sanctuary, feeding the animals and many other tasks.
Currently we have two volunteer work days on the 2nd and last Saturdays of the month. This works well for us as the people involved organise the group and the visit themselves.
The contact for the 2nd Saturday is London Vegan Meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/londonvegan/
You can contact Natalie via email too: firstname.lastname@example.org
The last Saturday is organised by the London Animal Rights meet-up group. Contact them at http://www.meetup.com/animalrights-202/
If you’re coming from somewhere else on these days you can still get in touch with them.
There’s no better way to start the festive season than at Brinsley Animal Rescue’s Christmas Open Day.
The sanctuary is run by volunteers and on vegan values, rescuing unwanted pets, injured wildlife and farm animal victims of the meat and dairy industry.
This year we will be having a Christmas open day at the rescue centre, where you can meet the animals and visit our cafe and stalls.
Plus we will also have our own stalls and outside stalls and charities at Brinsley Parish hall, which is a short walking distance from the rescue, on Cordy Lane, Brinsley NG16 5BY, where parking is available. There is no parking on site at the rescue centre.
Veggies and others will be providing vegan catering and literature to help compassionate people make the connection between the animals they’re visiting at the rescue and those that end up on their plate.
Come and see the animals, meet Santa, see the many stalls. Admission is £1 for adults and free to children when accompanied by an adult. Dogs on leads welcome.
Read the 2014 review at the Eastwood Advertiser: Crowds Flock to Support Rescued Animals
Brinsley Animal Rescue are short of volunteers during the Winter – fence building, staining, aviary building, mucking out, rabbit run building and more. Call Brinsley first to check arrangements. You can go by Rainbow 1 bus from Nottingham Victoria Bus station or Upper Parliament St (towards Eastwood/Alfreton). Ask for the Moor Road stop in Brinsley, by the fish&chip shop.
On alternate Saturdays transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham – call Lee 07599 282851, but any other time is good too.
Brinsley Animal Rescue is a not for profit organisation dedicated to caring for animals. Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals that come to us are simply ’surplus to requirements’ from the meat, dairy and egg industry. Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then it is our aim to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.
Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottingham Peace Festival from which it has grown.
Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.
Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 33 year history. We were pleased now to be joined by 10 other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.
The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.
This will be the 26th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2018.
You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.
