Scouts Supporting Fair Trade in Shirley

It’s Fair Trade Fortnight! (Febuary 25th – March 10th) Our Scouts had a fun evening taking part in games and activities which helped us understand the hardship faced by many people we depend on to provide the ingredients we need for our food.

We agreed that by taking a small step to look out for the Fair Trade logo when we buy our chocolate (and fruit), we’ll know that the farmers and their families will be paid a fair days wage for a fair days work, which will help them to support their families and community.

Will the market trader give the farmers a fair price for their fruit?
