Fairtrade Fortnight 2014 Competition Prizegiving

Competition Winners

Competition Winners outside the Sainsbury’s Local in Jarvis Brook

Bananas were the theme for Fairtrade Fortnight this year.  We asked shoppers in Crowborough to tell us how many Bananas were sold in the town between the 24th February and the 9th March.  The correct answer (to within a banana or two!) is 78,887.  We estimate that about 37,000 of them were Fairtrade.

We had two winners, each of whom were given a prize of a hamper of Fairtrade foods from local stores.  The awards ceremony took place at 10am on Saturday, 5 April.

Crowborough’s mayor, Cllr Peter Cowie, and the manager of the Sainsbury’s Local in Jarvis Brook awarded the winners their hampers.  The Sainsbury’s Local in Jarvis Brook supported the competition by donating one of the prize hampers.
