Thursday 27 February

National Fairtrade Fortnight

On Thursday 27 February, please do pop in between 10-12noon to a Fairtrade coffee morning at St Cuthbert’s Church, Lytham. 

Fairtrade refreshments, food, gifts and a raffle await.

All proceeds to Traidcraft Exchange, the charity that supports the small farmers to achieve a living income. 

For the second year running Fairtrade Fortnight is focusing on the chocolate farmers, living income.  £1.86 is the amount a cocoa farmer in West Africa needs to earn each day in order to achieve a living income.

In the Cote D ‘Ivoire, mostly all farmers live in poverty earning 0.74p a day. A living income means enough money to live a simple but dignified life , paying for essentials such as clothing , medicine and school. This is not a luxury but a human right.

Please come and support these events, being there is encouraging for the small team locally who steer Fylde Borough to maintain Fairtrade status (10 years +).

If you are able to help set up, clear away, make fairtrade cakes / goodies for these events; please call Julie – 07914 926422 or Christine – 07984 004973. All welcome.
