“Go vegan for Lent” Challenge

Anyone who wants to try out a fully plant based diet!

I just wanted to let you know that a group of people are taking up the – ‘Go vegan for Lent’ challenge. This is not religious, just that it covers roughly the Lenten period of 40 days. We are starting the group off on Saturday 8th March and running it through to 16th April.

Basically, you will have information provided on how to go vegan and stay vegan and contact with me as a mentor. There are several social opportunities over this time to meet and be with other vegans, also to try out vegan dishes.

You will also be networked into the group and able to exchange information on how things are going for you.

If you are interested in getting involved with this, please email me and I will send you further details.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Maya Hammarsal
