Christmas Activities for Fairtrade 2023

22 Jan Christmas Activities for Fairtrade 2023

Thanks to the creativity and hard graft of our Chair, Bernadette Fagan,we had an eye-catching and appealing presence at two events over theChristmas period.   As usual we had a Fairtrade stall at the VictorianFayre on December 3rd. The low sun and the sharp cold provided anappropriate setting for this cheerful and wonderfully well attendedevent. Our stall was well stocked with attractive and fairly tradedgoods from the Caldbeck One World Shop whose mission is to make theworld a fairer place through selling goods sustainably and fairly tradefrom around the world.We talked to people about the continued importance of Fairtrade forfarmers in the developing world,  and Bernadette offered Fairtradegingerbread to children passing by the stall.Bernadette also created a tree for the Southey Street MethodistFestival. I am biased, but I thought it stood out with its simplicityand clear message from some of the other rather more extravagantlydecorated trees.Our third endeavour was to  remind people that there are Fairtrade goodsfor sale perfectly appropriate for this festive season. We set up atable at Booths for one morning with Fairtrade goods available forpurchase in the store, focusing on wine and chocolates.  Booths  has achoice of Fairtrade wines from Chile, Argentina and South Africa atreasonable prices, and a wonderfully  enticing choice of chocolates. Twobrands new to us, Whitakers and Beeches, were offering especiallyappealing boxes.Thank you for continuing the support the campaign: we do appreciate yourloyalty.    If any one of you has the talents required for setting updisplays at stalls we would be very grateful for your help.
