Animal Aid Christmas Fair 2021 – cancelled

With Covid still a concern in the UK, Animal Aid have very sadly decided not to hold the Christmas Festival at Kensington Town Hall (nor the Exeter Christmas Market) this year.

Hopefully the event will return in 2022 as a fun day out for all the family – a perfect excuse to indulge in a bit of vegan food while doing some shopping for the festive season!

Details from previous years:

There will be more than 100 stalls with a wonderful variety of animal-free and Eco-conscious clothing, shoes and belts, handmade or hemp fashion items. Indulge in the diverse selection of skincare products – perfect presents. And so much more on offer, from aromatherapy to wildlife art. There will be three vegan caterers, plus a huge selection of vegan cakes, beers, cheeses, confectionery and delicious savoury pies on offer.

There is also a crèche and children’s workshop.

Keep an eye on the Animal Aid website and Facebook page for the full programme.

There is now a dedicated Twitter account for Animal Aid’s Christmas Fairs and other events. Please follow  @AnimalAidFayre.

If you are interested in booking a stall, please email Iain


Veggies Food is Here

Veggies Catering Campaign will be catering at the Fair. Veggies are a volunteer-led, community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment.

Volunteer with Veggies after 10am to help with serving teas, cakes or pasties. Even one hour’s volunteering would enable one of the core crew to have a break to look around the fair. If you would like to help, contact us or find Veggies on facebook

Veggies Climate Change Campaigns

Go Vegan
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. [references]

Nottingham COP26 Coalition Rally. The Forest – Market Square

On 6 November 2021, as world leaders meet in Glasgow for the COP26 Global Climate Summit, towns and cities across the world will take to the streets demanding global climate justice.

In Nottingham we will be assembling at the Forest Recreation Ground at 1pm, marching down Mansfield Road at 2pm and rallying in the Market Square at 3pm.

Join us for #FoodByVeggies.

 


We are living through a period of multiple breaking points – from climate to covid to racism. We know that these crises not only overlap, but share the same cause. 
While no one can escape the impacts of these crises, those who have done least to cause them suffer the most. Across the world, the poorest people and communities of colour are too often those bearing the brunt of the climate crisis. From coastal villages in Norfolk whose sea-defenses are eroding faster than ever, to people living by the Niger Delta rivers blackened by oil spillage.

We are calling for:

NO MORE COOKING. THE BOOKS: No To Fossil Fuels, Net-zero And False Solutions!
– Fight For 1.5
– We Need Real Zero, Not Net Zero
– Keep It In The Ground: No New Fossil Fuel Investments Or Infrastructure
– Reject False Solutions: No To Carbon Markets And Risky And Unproven Technologies

REWIRE THE SYSTEM: Start The Justice Transition Now!
– Start The Justice Transition

GLOBAL CLIMATE JUSTICE: Reparations And Redistribution To The Global South!
– Fair share of effort from all rich countries
– Cancel the debts of Global South by all creditors
– Grant-based climate finance for the Global South
– Reparations for the loss and damage already happening in the Global South

Free the MBR Beagles Demo at Home Office & Parliament

‼️JOIN US‼️ Next Monday 18th October outside of Westminster Hall in London. There will be Food By Veggies

Let’s make some noise for the EDM 175! A hearing to hold a scientific and public review into animal testing!

This is monumental in the animals rights movement! There has been NOTHING like this since 1906. We must ensure the government conduct this milestone review with integrity. The last time this was promised was before the 1997 Labour elections. More details from Free the MBR Beagles on facebook.

Some of you may remember Barry Horne, the activist who died on hunger strike in a bid to get the government to uphold their promise of a Royal Commission into vivisection. November 6th will mark the death of his 20 year anniversary.

Let’s unite and make sure animal research is abolished like it should have been back in 1906 ❤️

Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Drop-In on Wednesdays & Sundays 12am – 4pm . Collection or delivery at other times by arrangement.

During 2020 we converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to support an ethical alternative to many supermarkets. As we prepare to reopen Sumac as a regular social centre we are reducing the range of fresh fruit & veg and moving towards establishing a diy Food Hub Club for access to ethical loose & packaged wholefoods and ecological household products.

Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius. There is a drop-in facility between 11am & 5pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.

You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.

Many items come from bulk supplies. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty containers are welcome to maintain our supply.

We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and will look at deferred payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.

Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.

Map of 1 mile radius of Veggies & Sumac CentreWe are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Please join our Food Hub group on facebook updates, new products, delivery/collection details etc, or see details on the product list, our Food Hub page or this Facebook post.
