CELEBRITY GIFT BONANZA AT CRUELTY-FREE CHRISTMAS FAYRE 26 Nov 2000
Posted 26 October 2000
Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre, Kensington Town Hall
Sunday 26 November 2000, 10am to 5pm
For anyone having problems thinking of a Christmas present for someone special, a solution is at hand. How about a Chloe bag designed by Stella McCartney, the signatures of all the Arsenal football team, or a £250 gift voucher for Daniel Field Hairdressing? All are on offer and can probably be picked up at a bargain price in the Animal Aid Celebrity Auction.
The event - part of the national campaign group's annual Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre will be staged this year on 26 November at Kensington Town Hall.
Other celebrity donations, for which Fayre visitors will have a chance to bid, are from Spice Girl Melanie C, Kylie Minogue, Judi Dench, Michael Barrymore, Frank Skinner, and many many more!
The Fayre itself, featuring more than 40 charities and ethical traders, allows visitors to indulge in guilt-free Christmas shopping with everything from delicious chocolates and cruelty-free toiletries to non-leather jackets and Doc Martens. More practically, there will be seasonal essentials on offer, such as Christmas cards and calendars.
* Veggie meals and snacks are available throughout the day *
Says Fayre organiser Mary Shephard,
"Animal Aid's Christmas Without Cruelty Fayre offers people the chance to enjoy their Christmas shopping safe in the knowledge that their money will go directly to the charities, campaign groups and ethical traders who are trying to make a positive difference in the world."
Included among over 40 exhibitors at the Fayre are Honesty Cosmetics, Vegetarian Shoes, Compassion in World Farming and anti-vivisection groups the Dr Hadwen Trust and Uncaged.
