24 Aug: Plant milk outreach stall #HebdenBridge

To mark World (Plant) Milk Day and Animal Aid’s Dairy Week of Action, we will be holding a stall in Hebden Bridge town centre. We will have information, leaflets, milk and food samples.

If you fancy helping out by handing out samples or chatting to members of the public, contact Kim at kkashworth@gmail.com. Whether you can spare thirty minutes or four hours, every little helps!

If you’re not yet vegan, why not come along to try the samples and pose us your burning questions about plant milk! There may be chocolate…
