Clothes Swap, Upcycling and Recycling Day

Saturday, 15 April 2017
LCiL, West End Neighbourhood Centre, Andrewes Street, Leicester LE3 5PA
11.00am – 3.00pm

The Real Junk Food Project Leicester is hosting a day of clothes swapping, recycling and mending, plus freshly prepared cafe food made from intercepted food waste.

People are invited to come along and bring old clothes to be swapped, mended or upcycled and enjoy food and drinks from our cafe.

TRJFP Leicester operates in liaison with local shops, supermarkets and other food outlets to save perfectly good food from otherwise heading to landfill. The cafe operates on a Pay As You Feel basis and comes to life thanks to a wonderful team of volunteers.

Festival of Renewable Energy

Saturday, 6 May 2017
Outside Barclays on Humberstone Gate, Leicester
11.00am – 2.00pm

As part of the Global Divestment Mobilisation, we will be having another festival outside Barclays.

Barclays own 97% of Third Energy, the company that is trying to frack in beautiful Ryedale. We think that they should take their customers’ money out of dirty energy and invest it in clean energy instead so we will hold a Festival of Renewable Energy outside their door.

This festival is still being planned but here are our ideas so far:

  • eating cake (it wouldn’t be a festival without cake)
  • singing
  • making paper windmills with children passing by
  • constructing a wind turbine in the street
  • face-painting
  • juggling (does anyone know any jugglers?)

We invite you to come and contribute to this festival!
