Roundup From Riverside Festival

WOW!! What a wonderful weekend we had hosting the Eco Area at Leicester’s Riverside Festival 2016!

The sun came out and we fed hundreds of people delicious food that would have otherwise gone to waste on a ‘Pay As You Feel’ basis and raised a whopping £967.68.

There was a magical carnival vibe with live music from Mikey Kerslake on Saturday and the Verzions Acoustic Duo on Sunday. Huge thanks to Steve at Leicester Hackspace who fixed our Smoothie Bike so customers could customise and pedal their own ‘Real Junk Food Fruit Smoothies’ 😀

We would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers, musicians and eco stall holders who made this possible and to all the lovely customers who came and enjoyed a meal, a dance and made a donation. We cannot wait until next year 😀

Thank you to Ash Brown and Livi Lollipop for the images 😀
