    Want to support Chinese animal rights activists and their rescued animals, but cant come to Cupcakes and Dubplates?

    One of the activists, Grace, from Help Some Paws, is visiting the Chinese rescue centres in August. She has set up a GoFundMe site to allow people to donate directly to the animals if you cant come to the gig.
    With this money we will pay for animal veterinary treatment, medical supplies, food, and treats. Well worth it!!! Please donate what you can.

    Soon you will be able to watch the video we are making 'Friends not Food'. All going well we will upload it onto YouTube tomorrow afternoon!

    Gig update: Raffle on the night! Prizes from Lush, Shivalli and a food hamper from Leicester Vegetarian and Vegan Group.

    People are welcome to crash at mine if it is easier to leave cars in Donington and car share to/from Leicester. I have a spare room and a sofa...(and one friendly dog).

      :) you would be more than welcome. Could even stretch to making a big fat (or skinny) vegan breakfast in the morning :). Currently 3 in our car so room for one or two more.

    Hi Katrina, the last train back is at 23:42 looking at East Midlands Trains, there is also a National Express coach that leaves Leicester at 00:35 but doesn't arrive back in Nottingham until 1:15! Not sure where the venue is yet, got to do some research myself!

  • Maggie

    I would love to come to this but I don't know Leicester very well. Can I take up your offer of a lift? I live nearby so easy for me to hop over to you.

    1 · June 26, 2013

    • Jenny P.

      Yes sure that's fine. We will be driving back though as I think I need to be home - hope that suits or I can give a lift one way and sure someone else can bring you back :)
