a Fairtrade fair

and here's another
I was at West Heslerton Church of England primary school last week for their Fairtrade fair. There was a raffle, a guess the number of biscuits in the jar and other similiar stalls and then there were the cakes, all decorated with a variant on the Fairtrade logo and all tasting just as good as they looked.
here's one of them

The school had asked me if I would have a stall as well, selling food and craft items from Fairer World in Gillygate, York. So, as you can see below, I laid out my goodies and waited for customers. Friendship bracelets were the top seller, followed by pencils and packets of jelly beans. Several people commented that they did not realise the range of fairtrade goods that are now available, especially the non food items. So, for things that you can't buy locally, buy Fairtrade, the two are complementary not in opposition.
the stall, thank you west Heslerton and thank you Fairer World
