There was a great turnout for Donegal’s first ever Vegan Christmas Fayre on Tuesday night.
The event organisers, Donegal SPCA AR Committee, said that they were overwhelmed by the interest shown by the large crowd who visited the Fayre, held at the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny.
Their spokesperson said “The turnout was fantastic, far more than we could have anticipated. There must have been at least 500 people through the door, some already vegans and others interested in finding out how they can live a more compassionate and environmentally friendly lifestyle.’
The packed venue had an eclectic mix of stands showcasing vegan-friendly businesses including vegan leather goods, cruelty-free beauty products, eco pottery, knitwear, artisan sauces, food and more plus the information stand and sample table were kept busy all night.
The spokesperson said ‘We ran out of the complimentary hot chocolate three times – that’s got to be a good sign!’
The organisers added ‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the Vegan Christmas Fayre such a great success; whether it was setting up the Fayre, taking a stall, donating, making food, selling raffle tickets or manning the tables and of course thank you to everyone who came along on the night.’
In fact, the Fayre was such a success that the organisers are planning the next one already.
‘We’ll probably have the next one around Easter.’ they revealed. ‘It will be even bigger and better, with more food stands plus a few surprises.’
