Free Christmas Event:Sunday, November 25 2012

Hi All

We are holding a  FREE Christmas Fair next sunday in Holloway and are looking for people
to  help cook Vegan food and  bring  along a dish to share.
The event will start at 10am and end at 4pm

There will hopefully be treatments available too, but as it is all voluntary, this may change!
If you are a therapist who wishes to spread some seasonal love and goodwill, please let us know if you are able to offer your  services. You can be there for as little or as long as you like. 

A give and take will also be set up so you can donate any good quality unwanted items such as clothes, books toys,unwanted gifts and small electrical items .A give and take is a way for people to find homes for good quality reusable items they no longer want.
If you have any items you would like to donate please let us know.
You do not have to give to take anything.
We will be hoping to show some eco films like Forks over Knives, The Story of Stuff and maybe No Impact Man (does anyone have this on DVD they could lend us for the day.

If anyone can help with vegan food,holistic treatments or items for the give and take please let us know.
Do you have skills that you would like to share?Would you like to donate and be a giver?All offered of help are gretaly appreciated.I hope many of you can make it and enjoy a great day meeting each other and sharing.

Thanks Everyone

Hi John I am a trainee journalist and interested in doing a story for a local radio station on this free christmas event, would you be able to tell me a bit more about the event? Is everything free? what are the names of the people who are in charge? Is there a link to the event somewhere? I've gone on the justfortheloveofit.org but can't see anything on this event on 25th November. Thanks
