Fairtrade Fortnight 2017 in Carlisle

We had a busy Fairtrade fortnight with three varied events.

Our World Shop joined the farmers’ market and this was a great way to talk to people about Fairtrade, sell them some of our lovely products and direct them to our shop.










We had fun playing Fairtrade games with Robert Ferguson Primary School







Carlisle’s Mayor, Steven Layden, and Mayoress and Councillor Lee Sherriff joined us at our joint Fairtrade and Christian Aid coffee morning
