We warmly welcome you to join us for a special Sarx supporters’ Christian Animal Advocates Connect Day.
Taking place in Waterloo, London on Saturday 3rd November from 5pm till 9pm, this unique event aims to provide people, primarily Christians with an interest in animal advocacy, with a chance to network with others from a variety of backgrounds and traditions.
The attractive and cosy Oasis Hub Coffee House (an 8-10 minute walk from Waterloo station or 2 minute walk from Lambeth North tube station – click to see a map) provides an ideal space to meet like-minded people, strengthen your social and professional networks, exchange ideas and have fun!
There will also be an opportunity to hear some remarkable and inspiring personal stories as we interview “everyday animal champions”; ordinary people whose extraordinary work has made a tangible impact in benefiting animals.
