Fairtrade Fortnight

PostedThursday, 23 February 2017

Fairtrade Fortnight

Monday 27 February - Sunday 12 March 

The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog. However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem. 

We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2017. When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves. 

Join thousands of others across the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight to help our friends, neighbours, colleagues and communities to put Fairtrade in their break and take exploitation out. 

Ask your local cafes and shops for Fairtrade coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits for your break-time. 

If you are interested in helping the Kirkby Lonsdale supporters keep Fairtrade status for our town, please contact Liz Saunders on 015242 72124.
