3 Valley Vegans is highlighted in The University of Manchester Volunteer of the Year awards

The University of Manchester hosts an annual Volunteer of the Year event on 2 May 2019, recognising the achievements of its staff, students and alumni making a positive contribution with various communities around the world. We are delighted to announce that our own Phil Reed was shortlisted and subsequently awarded the “highly commended” certificate for his voluntary work with 3 Valley Vegans! His nomination highlighted the cookery demonstrations that the group have hosted, promoting healthy plant-based lifestyles and providing information to residents of Calderdale and beyond, plus his time with the core group meetings and implementation of digital technology and skills.

Come and join us on Sunday 26th May.

  • Start: outside the Golden Lion pub in Todmorden at 11.00 am.
  • Finish: Littleborough for a late lunch/afternoon tea at the Veggie Vixen in Littleborough (38 Victoria Street, OL15 9DB)

We’ll walk along the canal towpath which will be easy walking but we advise you to wear walking shoes/boots as some parts of the route can be muddy. Bring a rainproof coat and vegan snacks and drinks with you to keep you going until we reach the Veggie Vixen.

For anyone who wants a longer walk Elizabeth is going to start at Hebden Bridge at 9.30 joining the towpath near the Co-op in Hebden Bridge.

  • Friday, 18 January
  • 2pm for 1-2 hours
  • Humblest of Pleasures, Hebden Bridge (35 Market Street, HX7 6EU, bus stop near the Co-op)

Come along if you would like to share your experience of trying a plant-based diet for the new year, or if you have any questions that you’d like to ask other people who are trying it out too. Perhaps you would like to know about shopping, cooking or eating out? How do you get on with friends, family or colleagues? What have you found most difficult and most easy?

There will be a chance to speak to people who have been vegan for many years who can describe how the health and well-being aspects have worked out for them.

We will be hosting a quiz at the end of the month too! Details to follow.
