There will be dozens of stalls
There will be cookery demonstrations, food tasting, vegan cakes, cruelty-free cosmetics, doll making for kids and dozens of market stalls at a free event in Derby next month.
Designed for vegans, vegetarians, animal lovers and those wishing to buy products that have not been tested on animals, it will take place in St Peter’s Church, in St Peter’s Street.
Stallholders include Clemie’s Vegan Cakes, Lush, Derby Animal Rights, Vegan Society and Veggie’s Catering, Amnesty International and international environmental pressure group Extinction Rebellion.
Named Compassionate Derby and described as an ethical living event, it will be in the city on Saturday, December 7, from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
A spokesperson said: “Compassionate Derby will offer you a kind way to shop for Christmas with plenty of ethical gift ideas and potentially life-changing insights into a healthy, responsible, caring, animal and environment-friendly way of living.
“The event calls upon individuals to review lifestyle choices and bring about change, and being ethically aware, even while shopping, can make a difference. Through the experience, they aim to help improve our outlook and sense of well-being, encouraging everyone to take positive action.”
As well as food, drink, Christmas gift ideas, there will be talks on ethical issues.
Visitors will also be able to learn about the work of many local and national charity campaigning organisations.
Proceeds from this year’s Compassionate Derby event will be going to Brinsley Animal Rescue Centre , a volunteer-run animal sanctuary in Nottinghamshire which helps rescue injured wildlife and rehome unwanted pets and farm animals.
