Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 25th February until 10th March this year and so is straight after half term!

This year’s campaign is about ensuring that cocoa farmers are paid fairly for their work and are able to live a dignified life.

Can you “Bake with a Difference” for Fairtrade?

We will be having a competition to see who can bake the tastiest cake or biscuits with the most delicious Fairtrade ingredients. If you want to enter please collect a form from the office from Friday 15th February.
