TheEaling Animal Charities Fair is organised by Thinking of Animals CIC Although the information given here is, to the best of the organiser’s knowledge and belief, correct, the organiser reserves the right to make alterations and amendments, as necessary.
The purpose of the Ealing Animal Charities Fair is to help relieve the suffering of animals throughout the world. The aim is also to encourage the recognition that animals, (like human beings), should be treated with compassion and respect.
Entrance is free. Why not pop in for lunch or refreshments?
Each year local dignitaries, the Mayor of Ealing and local Members of Parliament are invited to attend the Fair to view the work of the stallholders and to discuss animal welfare issues. Refreshments are available throughout the day... so why not call in for lunch or refreshments and, if you wish, relax in the quieter atmosphere of the Church.
The Ealing Animal Charities Fair was started on Saturday 20th May1978 and since then
has been an annual event, usually held on the first Saturday in March. Originally
it was called the Ecology and Animal Welfare Bazaar and was held at Ealing Town Hall.
In 2010 it changed its name to the Ealing Animal Welfare Bazaar and moved its venue
to Hanwell Methodist Church which is still located in the London Borough of Ealing.
For its 40th anniversary year (2018), the name changed to Ealing Animal Charities
During its 43 years, there have been changes in its format and, now, as well as lots
of animal charity stalls, it also includes a programme of presentations by eminent
speakers and live music.
Around 40 charities/groups participate in the event, representing a variety of local,
national and international animal welfare causes. The stalls raise funds for their
work by offering a variety of goods, gifts and bargains for sale. Leaflets and information
on their work is available at the event.
Since September 2017, the Ealing Animals Charities Fair has become organised by the
Community Interest Company Thinking of Animals CIC.
