Fairtrade fares well

SCHOOLCHILDREN are taking part in a world record attempt at the longest line of bunting in the world and it’s all in support of Fairtrade.

Millions of people around the UK are currently showing their passion for Fairtrade for two weeks, until March 13.

The aim is to get more people excited about Fairtrade and the difference every day choices can make, from their cups of tea to their cotton socks.

And during Fairtrade Fortnight people all over the country are showing off their support for Fairtrade by designing, decorating and displaying Fairtrade cotton bunting.

On March 12, celebrating the last weekend of Fairtrade Fortnight, a canal boat bringing completed bunting from neighbouring areas and featuring displays produced by Myerscough College will moor in the Lancaster Canal Basin from 11am to 2pm.
