Taking a Fairtrade Break at the Oxfam Shop, Sat 25 Feb

Submitted by anne on Fri, 03/17/2017 - 15:26

We spent the day speaking to passers-by and shoppers at the Oxfam shop, offering them a free cup of Fairtrade coffee, kindly provided by Starbucks on Fishergate. This was greatly welcomed as it was a miserable day and quite wet. We encouraged people to think about 'putting Fairtrade in their breaks' and those enticed into the Oxfam shop could sample various goodies donated by 100% Fairtrade companies, in particular Traidcraft, Divine chocolate, Liberation nuts and Cafedirect. The Mayor and Mayoress joined us there for Fairtrade elevenses.
