Fairtrade Fortnight 2016

What a great time Sudbury had this year.

Tudor Primary school had a wonderful Fairtrade afternoon “breakfast” on Friday 11th March. Fairtrade banana muffins were baked by the children. The school Fairtrade committee helped to serve Fairtrade tea and coffee refreshments to mums, dads, brothers and sisters after school.

On Saturday,12th March, Patrick Kaberia Muthaura, a tea farmer from Kenya came to Sudbury. The hall at St John’s Methodist Church had over 50 people present.

Patrick explained how Fairtrade helps the community. He was a wonderful communicator and so enthusiastic about Fairtrade. His message was “Buy more Fairtrade”!

17 Nov

Felixstowe AGM 6.11.15.

Two members of the Sudbury Fairtrade group attended the AGM at Felixstowe.

Also there was Rachael Sweet from the Fairtrade Foundation. She explained about the Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 visit of a tea farmer from Kenya. Hopefully he will visit Sudbury.

Rachel talked about the focus of next year’s Fairtrade Fortnight, the BIG Fairtrade breakfast.

It was good to meet other Fairtrade folk from across Suffolk:  Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. Perhaps we could have a Suffolk Fairtrade website?
