Notting Hill’s Carnival Weekend will give vapers a chance to support a worthy cause.
Every year, the Carnival Weekend in Notting Hill lives up to its reputation as an outstanding event and is firmly entrenched as one of the world’s great festivals; the second largest in existence behind only Rio de Janeiro’s Carnaval. The cultural juggernaut hosts 70 performing stages, 15, 000 costumes, hundreds of food stalls and sees two million people line the streets around West London. This year, the 53rd outing has some thing special for the charitable vaper.
Vapour Core owner Leon Hackett will be setting up a special stand at the carnival, with the day’s proceeds going to victims of the Grenfell Towers tragedy.
“It’s a massive opportunity to do something great that we can’t pass up,” he says.
Vapour Core is a mere ten-minute drive from the Grenfell site, and Leon has spoken highly of how the local community have, and continue to respond.
“We’ve talked to locals about how they’ve been affected and knew we had to help too.”
In addition to their usual merchandise, Vapour Core will have a slushie machine at the ready, and vape company Rude Oil have also kindly supplied some of their slushie flavours. Vapouround will be happily contributing 100 bottles of juice to sell.
All proceeds from the day will be going to charity without exception.
“It’s the biggest festival of its kind in Europe, with two million people attending every year. It looked like the perfect opportunity to engage with vapers, both local and visiting. We want the money going through the most direct channel possible, getting straight to the people who need it most.”
The Notting Hill Carnival will take place begin on Saturday 26 August and end on Monday 28. If you vape, come to the stand, enjoy what’s on offer and take the chance to do something that really matters.
