The IWD on Saturday was a roaring success. What began as a request to cater for the day, turned into a 3 Valley Vegans event !!
Between us all, we managed to promote veganism, raise some money for our group and the Mayor’s Charity and ensure that all food provided was vegan. Alison cooked all day Friday and Saturday and Helen valiantly made over 100 superb cakes ! Penny bought us lots of lovely Saker cake and Mary & Estelle decorated the cafe beautifully and served the food in their special tea party pinnies !
Elizabeth and Margaret did the full day on the stall and Rachel, Janet, Sandra, Caz & our lovely Isaac did their stints too. We raised over £400 on the hot food and cakes .. which will go to Overgate Hospice and a Women’s Refuge.
I think that it was a great way to launch our group and that we’ll go on from strength to strength showing the world (or at least the Upper Calder Valley!!) how a vegan lifestyle is the way to go!!
