Ethical Shopping at Animal Aid’s Compassionate Christmas Show! 3 December 2006

Posted 24 November 2006

Sunday December 3rd 2006, Kensington Town Hall, London

There is no better time than the season of peace and goodwill to buy fabulous yet ethical food, wine and gifts. Animal Aid’s Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre proves that it is perfectly possible to find sumptuous organic, fair-trade and animal- and environment-friendly products all under one roof. In fact, it’s never been easier to eat, drink, spend and be merry with a completely clear conscience!

Animal charities, ‘green’ companies, campaign groups, ethical traders, and performers all come together to make the Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre a not-to-be-missed event for compassionate consumers. Seventy-five stands offer a wide assortment of goods, including cosmetics, toiletries, fashion and footwear, books and chocolates, along with Christmas staples such as cards, calendars and wrapping paper. Children can take part in activity workshops, or marvel at our famous contortionist, Rubber Ritchie, and when mums and dads have shopped till they've dropped, delicious vegan food - from warming winter chestnut casserole to sweet and sticky chocolate cakes - will help recharge the batteries.

Our keynote speaker at this year’s Fayre is the well-known human rights activist, Peter Tatchell. This is a unique opportunity to hear one of Britain’s most interesting and sometimes controversial speakers, talking on the subject, “Animal Research is Bad Science”.

An exciting new political party, Animals Count, will be launched at the Fayre by Jasmijn de Boo, following success in Holland - a UK political party for a better world for people and animals.

A highlight of the day will be the celebrity auction, with a selection of unique memorabilia going under the hammer. Don’t miss this chance to pick up one-of-a-kind items from stars including Ricky Gervaise, Chrissie Hynde, Joanna Lumley, Tony Benn, Fearne Cotton, Matt Lucas, Stella McCartney, Graham Norton, plus a signed Manchester United Pennant.

Being an ethical consumer doesn’t mean you have to miss out on life’s little luxuries. So, come to Animal Aid’s Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre and spend, spend, spend, happy in the knowledge that all your money is going to support good causes.

‘Tis indeed the season to be jolly!

So add the date to your diary now. This is THE ETHICAL event of the YEAR, AND is not to be missed!
