**To aviod disappointment, please remember last month the amount of people turning up did cause delays and people were waiting up to 40 minutes for their meals. We sold out of food at 3:30pm. We will be ordering more stock in for those who would like to come for dinner and rostering on more staff to be more time efficient**

Celebrate A Place of Peace’s 20th Birthday – Friday, 28 July 2017

Message from Billie Dean

Really looking forward to this event and the animals of A Place of Peace have been very excited to be filmed and have their voice heard, especially our matriarchs who have been here with us for 20 years, living in peace. Come and enjoy the celebration, the party, the films, the talks, the food and help us raise much needed funds for winter hay. See you there!!

Event Info:  Join the Deep Peace Trust for a fun evening celebrating A Place of Peace’s 20 years as an animal sanctuary, and support our fundraiser for much-needed winter hay. The evening will include talks, short films, and party nibbles (all vegan, of course). You can look forward to meeting some of the 450-plus characters who call A Place of Peace home on video, and there might just be a party game or two. A fun night, for sure, and all for a great cause that’s been going on for two decades, and has helped, literally, hundreds and hundreds of animals. See you there!

It’s that time again for cheap eats, freebies, and sales!

On Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 September, local cafes and businesses in Braddon will be slashing prices, giving away samples and putting special vegan products on the menu.

Join us for a weekend-long celebration of everything vegan!

Here’s how it works:
We will be creating a map of all the participating businesses. Come and collect your map & vouchers from the Cruelty Free Shop. Then enjoy spending the weekend walking around redeeming the vouchers. It’s a great time to treat yourself and showcase delicious vegan foods and products to friends and family.

At the Cruelty Free Shop, we’ll have storewide discounts on hundreds of items and special offers plus free food tastings all weekend long.

Please note: as hundreds of products in store will be discounted already, no further discounts will be available over the weekend (e.g. Vegan Card, loyalty points, etc.).

If you’ve been before, you’ll know why we’re so excited! More than 5,000 people attended the Vegan Day Out in Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne in April this year.

Make sure to invite your friends to this event page! Let’s make this bigger and better than ever!
