Fairtrade Fortnight Competition Prize-Giving

April 11, 2012

Children from Crowborough primary schools met at the Fernbank Centre for the Crowborough Fairtrade Fortnight Competition Prize-Giving.

“Take a Step for Fairtrade” was the theme for Fairtrade Fortnight this year, providing a fantastic opportunity to promote Fairtrade and the importance of supporting local retailers.

During the two weeks of the event, local youngsters were invited to find Fairtrade goods in participating shops.  Winners were those finding the most produce.  In the event of a tie, the most unusual Fairtrade item identified won the prize.

Deputy Mayor Philip Fermor awarded certificates and Fairtrade chocolate to the six winners.  Children from Herne, Jarvis Brook, Sir Henry Fermor, and Wihtehill primary schools attended, with parents and shopkeepers providing further support.
