It’s Fairtrade Fortnight!
29th Feb – 13th March 2016
Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers!
As Martin Luther King famously said, "Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you've depended on more than half the world". Despite our dependence on farmers and workers for the foods, drinks and products that we love, about 795 million people are undernourished globally.
Here at our new shop location, we’re getting really excited about all the activities coming up for Fairtrade Fortnight this year. The theme highlights our dependence on farmers and workers across the world and why it’s high time they were treated with respect and fairness.
We’re delighted to let you know what we’re offering schools and nurseries this year and share some of our ideas on what you can do in your school to make this Fairtrade Fortnight really successful.
What do you put on your toast in the morning??
- Run a stall or a tuckshop over a whole day or for a full week and get each class to visit it in turn. Choose from our wide range of affordable pocket money crafts and foods. Tell parents in advance what you are planning.
- Parents evening stall: Arrange for pupils to run a Fairtrade stall to visitors, tell parents in advance. Choose items from our range of products.
- Run a Fairtrade Breakfast for pupils and teachers – we can provide muesli, tea, coffee, juices, health bars, marmalade and jams.
- Book a Fair Trade speaker – contact us for a date and time, we provide a range of presentations to suit your age group.
- Make a collage on the theme of a Fair Trade Breakfast – ask all pupils to bring in fairtrade wrappers and create your beautiful collage.
- Visit our shop: Bring a group of pupils along to the shop, we can show pupils round, give talks on the background of the products and how Fair Trade works in practice and arrange refreshments in The Well Café on site. Parking is available just next door to the shop.
