Fairtrade Fortnight 2015

February 18, 2015

This year’s theme for Fairtrade Fortnight is simply… the basics!  Tea, sugar, and cocoa are the key Fairtrade goods to look out for in the two weeks between the 23rd February and the 8th March.  (But don’t ignore all the other Fairtrade goods that are also available!).

As usual, Crowborough Fairtrade would like you to buy your Fairtrade goods here in Crowborough.  We’ve organised the Fairtrade Treat Trail to encourage you!

Many of Crowborough’s primary schools will be handing out Fairtrade Treat Trail cards.  You can see images of the front and the back below.  All we’re asking you to do is visit three different shops in Crowborough, and look out for tea, sugar, or cocoa (including chocolate!).  At each shop, ask for a sticker, and stick it in one of the spaces on the card.  Easy!

If your child’s school isn’t distributing cards, ask for one from a participating retailer.

The shops taking part are:

  • BP Croft Road;
  • Chappell’s Health Food, Croft Road;
  • Dominos Pizza, Croft Road;
  • Harvest Energy, Eridge Road;
  • Kreshaa Express, Crowborough Hill;
  • Krish Food and Wine, Eridge Road;
  • Lidl, Eridge Road;
  • Morrisons, Eridge Road;
  • News Plus, Crowborough Hill;
  • Poundfield Stores, Green Lane;
  • Sainsburys, Crowborough Hill, Jarvis Brook;
  • Tesco, Sybron Way, Jarvis Brook;
  • Waitrose, Croft Road;
  • Whitehill News and Convenience, Whitehill Road;
  • X-Press, Crowborough Hill, Jarvis Brook.

If you have three stickers on your card, come along to the Crowborough Community Centre between 2pm and 2:30pm on the 7th March, and you can exchange your card for a Fairtrade snack bar*.  If you write your name on the bottom of the completed card, you have the chance to win a Fairtrade hamper.  The winning card will be drawn at 2:30pm.

See you on the 7th!

*Note that only one card per person will be accepted!
