November is here already!
October was a very busy month and we were excited to be included in ‘The Only Way is Ethics’ fashion show, fundraising for The Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW - you can find out more about the charity by clicking here.) The event was well attended and included interesting and thought provoking talks from Where Does It Come From, Pre-Loved Chica and more, as well as our own Catwalk! You can see some photos from the event here
This month also saw SAFTS Fairtrade Fortnight which included a young writers competition and the chance for schools to have a zoom call with tea farmers in Kenya! It’s been lovely to see the next generation taking an interest in Fairtrade.
As we head into the festive season we will have lots of new stock arriving, as well as past seasonal favourites. Make sure to pop in for all your Fairtrade Christmas essentials!
