So far we have raised £ 1,700 for charity !
The first year of The Norwich Vegans saw the group grow quite rapidly, this meant we had the chance to think about fundraising and putting on some events.
If you have a favourite charity that you would like us to raise funds for, please contact us. We vote for the 2 charities at our December meeting and we announce them in January.
With so many deserving charities to choose from it is always going to be hard to make the decision, so we decided to choose two and have 6mths for each. We decided to stay local with our first one and decided on Hillside Animal Sanctuary
The June Pop-Up was our final month for Hillside, it turned out to be another successful event. We are pleased to announce the total amount we will be donating to Hillside
We have also adopted Dancer and Prancer 2 donkeys and Billy the pig. Please have a look at www.hillside.org.uk to find out more about this Amazing local sanctuary.
Our chosen charity for the next 6 months is www.animalsasia.org We will be starting in July with our BBQ to be held on Saturday 11th between 1-4. This will be our first big event which we will be hosting, the facebook event page has all the details.
December we had our final event of the year Norwich’s First Vegan Christmas Market,It was a great success and hope it will become an annual event.
We have been able to raise £ 400 this past 6 months to donate to Animals Asia.
Our chosen charity for the next 6 months is www.wingandaprayerhaven.org.uk check out their website to see all that they do for injured wild birds.
Please help us raise money for this great local charity by coming along to our events.
Thanks to all our volunteers, customers and stall holders we were able to present a Cheque for £ 300 and 2 heavy donation tins to Wing And A Prayer.
This will help with all the hungry mouths they continue to feed at the rehabilitation centre.
