Events in September

In September,
 
Animal Justice Project got busy in the North of England – we hosted a stall at the Leeds Radical Fair. In the words of our Northern Coordinator: “Animal Justice Project received a warm welcome and interest, and we enjoyed educating people about the benefits of a vegan diet. Mainly for the animals! It wasalso great to meet more of the Leeds Sea Shepherd volunteers, and make new friends with people from the environmental movement. We have been invited back again next year!”

 
Thanks also to Izzy for putting on an amazing fundraising gig in Sheffield last Saturday. The night was a great success and we raised over £200.
 
We’ll be saying Bon Voyage to Izzy as she’s off on her travels for a while, if you’d like to help out while she’s away then drop us an email at info@animaljusticeproject.com.
 
Please also give a warm welcome to our new West Mid lands Regional Coordinator, Charlotte! Charlotte will be organising fundraising stalls and helping us out at events throughout the West Midlands area, if you’d like to get involved with Animal Justice Project and you live nearby then you can contact Charlotte by email: charlotte@animaljusticeproject.com.
