Information on how to have a more compassionate and animal-friendly Christmas will be on hand at an event in Daventry.

Volunteers from the Animals in Need Sanctuary, based at Irthlinborough, will be taking part in the Christmas with Compassion event on Saturday December 19, 9am to 1pm at New Street Day Centre by Tesco.

In addition to raising much-needed funds, staff will also be pleased to receive donations of food, treats and toys for the abandoned animals spending the festive period at the Sanctuary.

The Daventry & Rugby Vegetarians and Vegans group will also be handing out meat-free recipes, advice and information on having a truly compassionate Christmas and New Year, and there will be examples of dishes to taste. Stalls will be selling a range of cosmetics, body oils, candles and health products.

Admission is free, and visitors can expect a free drink and mince pie. Further information can be found on the group’s Facebook page and website
