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 email@example.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…

Lamplighter Festival, Todmorden, Saturday, 19th November – have you got an hour to help?
Once again, we will take a market stall, sell hot vegan street food and provide information during the afternoon of the Lamplighter Festival. The stall will be set up from 3pm, opening about 3.30pm, and continue during the Illuminated Street Festival. We will pack up when the parade starts at 7pm.
Would you like to make something for us to sell? We will reimburse ingredients costs (receipts please). Food that can be wrapped and easily hand-held. We will probably have hot dogs, sausage rolls and daal/chilli already.
It is usually a busy and fun day and we will need lots of help. If you are willing and able to contribute some of your time in setting up, packing up, running the stall or providing tasters, even for an hour, please email Hilary at email@example.com.
