The wonderful Friends House Bookshop in central London once again hosted us on World Animal Day (falling in the middle of Quaker Week) with a specially-ordered range of animal titles for sale, plus the QAN/FWCC 2018 calendar (featuring beautiful artwork by our own Ann Johnson).
Angela, Julie, Judith and Thom launched our new website and sold copies of our Autumn 2017 Newsletter, handing out literature and speaking with enquirers.
At the Quaker Centre Bookshop we always look forward to hosting Quaker Concern for Animals every year on World Animal day 4th October. From animal rights to veganism, pets to service animals, there is so much to think and read about and many ways we can appreciate our fellow creatures.

The good folks in Friends House Restaurant featured a special vegan menu all day.
Having an all vegan menu on World Animal day has been a great success. Lots of customers came into the restaurant expecting to have their usual meat or fish, but were willing to try the plant based meals we offered instead, saying how much they enjoyed them. The success of this should allow us to incorporate more plant based dishes on the menu.
