The Sanctuaries Fair is a new initiative at the flagship vegan festival VegfestUK London on Oct 26-27 at Olympia London, raising much-needed funds for a number of animal sanctuaries.
The Sanctuaries Fair also centres the importance of supporting sanctuaries and the wider need for animal protection, in a fun, welcoming and uplifting environment of fairground games, raffles and more activities. Taking place on Level 3 (Olympia Conference Centre) on both days of the festival, the Fair aims to raise money for a number of sanctuaries whilst offering both adults and kids a great space to chill and have fun. The list of sanctuaries will be announced in September.
The organisers added, “The Sanctuaries Fair is one of a number of new ideas for this year’s show, which serves to provide much-needed awareness and funds for some of the most dedicated and resourceful animal activists. We look forward to seeing a packed fair with a great vibe whilst also helping animals in a very practical and supportive way.”
Also taking place on Level 3 are a number of other related activist areas, including: Animal Rights & Activism, the Animal Think Tank, the VGN News room, Vegan Activists Support, the New Vegans Support, the VGN Climate Change Summit and the Wildlife Summit.
We’re also supporting Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, who is facing some challenging times – if they do not raise the amount of money needed to fund the sanctuary in the next few days then this will be the end of the sanctuary – and is therefore welcoming donations, sharing and support. Ultra-marathon runner Fiona Oakes, who runs the sanctuary along with friends and family, is a long-time guest at our events, and we’ll be supporting her campaign, and welcome any support and shares.
