Posted 18 November 2009
South West Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre
Exeter Corn Exchange (formerly St George’s Hall)
Market Street, Exeter, EX1 1BU
Sunday 29 November 2009
The South West is all set for a cruelty-free Christmas extravaganza at the end of the month when Animal Aid brings its unique eco-friendly Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre to Exeter Corn Exchange on November 29.
More than 30 stands will offer visitors the chance to buy unusual Christmas gifts and cards in the sure knowledge that their purchases go to worthy organisations and do not cause any harm to animals, humans or the environment.
Cruelty-free and environmentally friendly products on sale include fairtrade clothing, cosmetics, perfumes and make-up, charity Christmas cards, handmade chocolates, renewable energy products, treats for companion animals and jewellery.
On the menu at our fabulous vegetarian café are savoury dishes such as spinach and lentil lasagne; bakewell tart and chocolate cheesecake for dessert; and lighter snacks ranging from savoury pastries to mince pies - all of them free from animal ingredients.
There will be a film and talk about the latest ocean protection campaigns from the brave Sea Shepherd crew, plus a presentation from Animal Aid’s education officer Ann Harriman.
Even the face paints for children have been ethically sourced to ensure that they are free from animal testing!
We’ve got some great bargains available at our lucky dip stall and some attractive prizes to be won, including gift sets donated by Lush Cosmetics.
And last but not least, Crediton World Music Choir will be performing live at midday. Everyone who came last year enjoyed their vibrant songs from around the world and we are delighted to welcome them back again.
All in all, we’ve done everything we can to make it a special day out, as well as a successful cruelty-free shopping trip! So why not come along, buy your presents, have a delicious lunch and enjoy the music?
