Can you help on our festival stalls in September? #Calderdale

It’s almost that time of the year again when we bring in and celebrate the summer and harvest, both figuratively and literally. 3 Valley Vegans will be appearing on three stalls in September.

  1. Blackshaw Head Village Fete — Saturday 2nd Sept, fields by the Methodist Church
  2. Incredible Edible Harvest Festival — Sunday 17th Sept, Pollination St behind Todmorden Market
  3. 3VV info stall on the Market — Thursday 21st Sept, Todmorden open market

We are looking for volunteers to help with whatever aspect of running these that you are comfortable with, such as setting up, talking to people, or making some food. Even coming down for even an hour or so would be great!

Can you help? Please email Hilary on hils46@yahoo.co.uk if you would like to know more.

Vegan Festival of Britain 2017 logoAnimal Aid are celebrating their 40th anniversary with the Vegan Festival of Britain, running 20 May to 10 June 2017. 3 Valley Vegans are joining in by hosting a stall on Todmorden open air market on Thursday, 1 June.

The information stall will be a celebration of veganism and will promote all things vegan. We will provide information about how and why to go vegan and where to buy and eat vegan food in the area. There will be lots of vegan recipes for people to take away and free samples of vegan food for people to try.  If anyone would like to help out either by baking or creating some food samples to give away or by helping out on the stall then please contact Elizabeth on elizabethking@talktalk.net

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.
