In March, the Fair Trade Group applied for the Fairtrade Fortnight Schools Award 2017.
The standard of entries this year was incredibly high and it was a tough decision by the judges but ours really stood out. We are pleased to say that Sir Jonathan North received first place and has been awarded £350 towards future Fair Trade work. Below we have shared something of the glowing email we received; ‘By running Fairtrade workshops for local primary schools at your Eco Event you reached a whole new audience with peer-to-peer learning. The judges also commented on how inspirational Naomi and Shahara’s speech is – it is clear that they have a very good understanding of Fairtrade and what it means to be a global citizen.’
Congratulations to the Fair Trade Group and their exceptionally hard work this year!
