Mossley Fairtrade Fortnight serves up a treat

FAIRTRADE Fortnight in Mossley was well supported in the town.

The £305 proceeds from Fair Ted’s Big Brew and the Fairtrade Breakfast, both hosted by Mossley Methodists Church, will be split equally between the Fairtrade Foundation and Christian Aid.There were also two taster days at Mossley Co-op where shoppers could sample Fairtrade produce.

The stall in the entrance offered shoppers a variety of Fairtrade products, including five flavours of chocolate, tea, coffee and orange juice as well as cotton wool buds.

Officials from Fairtrade Mossley and volunteers at the taster days were assisted by children from Micklehurst All Saints Primary School.

Fairtrade Mossley’s Janet Davies said: “We had a very successful Fairtrade Fortnight with support from around the town.

“Fairtrade’s work in schools is impressive, pupils are knowledgeable about the issues, including fair and just payment for goods and the problems faced by farmers due to climate change.”
