A Date with Fair Trade, High Street Methodist Church

February 21st, 2015 by J-P Leave a reply »

To mark Fairtrade Fortnight this year the Witney Area Fair Trade Action Group is holding a special event with the focus on supporting producers of tea, cocoa and sugar in developing countries. We consume vast amounts of these items in Britain, and sometimes give little thought to the lives of those whose hard work enables us to do so.

“A date with Fair Trade” is just that – an opportunity to come and find out more about Fair Trade and how it helps to give producers a fair wage. There will be stalls where you can buy beautiful and delicious Fair Trade goods, a pop-up cafe serving soup and filled rolls and a tempting range of home-made cakes with tea and coffee, a film which will have several showings throughout the day and bring the message of Fair Trade to life, plus music, singing by the Songscope Choir and face-painting for the children.

So please come along to the High Street Methodist Church on Saturday, 28th February from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to join in the fun and give your support to a very worthwhile cause!
