VON Volunteers: Izaak, Josh, Angelina, Roger and Dan After an early start leaving Manchester, we were greeted at the event by Lincoln Veggies who helped unload our car and made us welcome. All the campaign stalls were upstairs. The main attraction was on the ground floor with a wide variety of free vegan delights for people to sample.
On the first floor we were accompanied by about 15 other stands including League Against Cruel Sports –Stop the badger kill, Anivisection and Animal Rights Groups and groups selling animal friendly products. There was a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in the hall with a steady flow of people it didn’t get too busy, and people had time to talk with us.
Roger, Josh and Angelina arrived early and helped through out the day.
Izaak and Josh went round the event selling the Growing Green International Magazines and Growing Green DVDs, Roger and Angelina charmed people to the stand, signing up new members and selling over a dozen of Jenny’s and Tolly’s book ‘Growing Green-Organic Techniques for a Sustainable Future’.
Izaak took the cake (literally), he guessed the weight of a magnificent vegan cake and won it-yum yum.
Big thanks to Lincoln Veggies for putting on a great day!
