Todmorden Choral Society spring concert 2017 catering

Catering for Todmorden Choral Society spring 2017 concert
Some of the savoury dishes served. Inset: the sweet dishes.

Yesterday (30 April 2017),  3 Valley Vegans was asked to cater for the Todmorden Choral Society spring 2017 concert at Todmorden Town Hall. After the performance of Herakles, a new oratorio by Tim Benjamin, supper was served.

We are delighted to have been invited by Cllr Anthony H. Greenwood JP, and are indebted to the volunteers who prepared and served the tasty finger food dishes. The entirely vegan catered event was very well received, especially the bruschetta and chocolate ‘crack’ dishes. Thanks again, Hilary, Andrew and Angie for cooking, and Elizabeth, June and Phil for serving.

The ‘profit’ that 3 Valley Vegans made from this catering activity will be donated to Animal Aid, a charity who campaign peacefully against all forms of animal abuse and promote cruelty-free living.

Vegan breakfast and lunch at Saker

SakerSaker, the bakers in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, are introducing a range of vegan sandwiches in their Hebden Bridge shop on Market Street.

Did you know that all their bread is already suitable for vegans?  They also make great vegan croissants fresh each day (Mon-Fri, butter ones at the weekend) and have a vegan cake most days.  There is also their range of pasties and sausage rolls, most of which are suitable for vegans, plus lots of vegan-friendly groceries.  Saker vegan sarnies

On the subject of vegan options, due to popular demand, the Long Causeway Trading Co have introduced a vegan pie to their range of hand-made savory pies!  (It has been tasted by 3vv – verdict: delicious)
