The best of Fairtrade Fortnight!

March 11, 2016

All across the country, for the last two weeks, people have been meeting together, eating together and celebrating the positive power of Fairtrade! Breakfasts, Big Brews and a whole lot of other events have gone to show just how much you care about farmers and artisans in developing countries.

We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who got involved - it has been a privilege to work with you and see your passion for fighting poverty shine through.

It's been a fortnight full of highlights and although we can't quite capture them all here, we hope you'll get a taste of what went on below...

 

We all ate a lot of delicious food...

 

 

 

  

 

We weren't afraid to look a little bit silly...

  

 

 

 

 

And SO many people got together to show their support...

  

 

 

 

 

 

And that's just a small part of all the brilliant things that have been happening.

It has been a really significant Fairtrade fortnight -  people across the UK have given their time and money to stand up for farmers in developing countries - and it really does make a difference. Lives will be changed by the events of these last two weeks.

And although Fairtrade is a year round thing for Traidcraft and its supporters, it's great to spend a fortnight celebrating together and raising the profile of Fairtrade in this country.
