RSPCA vegan fayre returns to Kempsey

Evesham Editorial 25th Aug, 2023   0

INVITATIONS are being extended for the return of RSPCA’s vegan fayre.

The RSPCA vegan fayre – organised by the Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire branch – will take place at The Holdings Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Kempsey on Sunday, August 27 from 11am to 4pm.

The vegan fayre – returning for its second year – will be home to food vendors and craft stalls selling delicious and beautifully made vegan treats including main courses, desserts, sweets, artisan beauty products, nick-nacks and more.

Funds raised from the stallholders’ pitches fees and any donations from the day will go directly to the branch to help fund the ongoing care of the animals as well as animal welfare work in the community.

Claire Wood, RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire Branch, said: “After last year’s highly successful vegan fayre we are very excited to be bringing it once again to our Kempsey rescue and rehoming centre!

“This special event will be showcasing the best small and independent businesses from Worcestershire and its surrounding areas.

“We have a large number of stallholders already booked so it is going to be a fantastic day.

“We will also have our own vegan-friendly stalls – plants, upcycled furniture – as well as a vegan barbecue.”

The RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire Branch are also looking for forever homes for several animals currently in their care and ask those considering having a pet to look into rehoming rather than purchasing.

More than 230 cats have already come through the doors of The Holdings Animal Centre in Kempsey in 2023, a rise of 32 percent compared to the same period last year and the centre is experiencing a slowdown in the demand for kittens.

While the centre is experiencing a slowdown in people wanting to adopt kittens, particularly pairs.

Claire added: “We’re seeing a record number of unwanted cats and the situation is showing no sign of slowing down.

“Together with our small team of fosterers we’ve currently got 48 cats and kittens in our care and we also have a long waiting list.

“We’re also getting calls on an almost daily basis from people who want to relinquish their pets, it’s heartbreaking.”
