Fairtrade Fortnight 2009

Fairtrade Fortnight was exceptionally busy this year! As well as our regular stall in Fareham Shopping Centre, we gave a presentation to Fareham Borough Council, took part in a Fairtrade event at the Wicor Co-Op, and held a Fairtrade tasting in our shop unit. There was also a Fairtrade Festival at Locks Heath Free Church, which included the creation and then eating of a gigantic banana split!

A selection of photographs from these events can be seen below; click on a small picture to see a larger version.
