Host of Fairtrade events to take place in Droitwich

Droitwich Editorial 19th Feb, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

A HOST of events are taking place in Droitwich for Fairtrade Fortnight.

Droitwich first gained accreditation to become a Fairtrade Town in 2007 and since then the campaign has gone from strength to strength.

A display at the town’s library in Victoria Square will go on display on Monday (February 23) and be available to view for the whole two weeks.

Then next Friday (February 27), there will be a Fairtrade stall in the community market from 9am to 3.30pm.

Next Saturday (February 28), a coffee morning will be held between 10am and midday at Droitwich Methodist Church where there will be a Fairtrade stall and children’s activities.

Spokesperson for Fairtrade Droitwich Emily Bowsher said: “People will be able to come along and find out more about the Fairtrade movement.

“We have had a lot of interest over the last few years from local businesses wanting to sell Fairtrade products or use Fairtrade tea and coffee for their staff.

“We are hoping more people will come along to the events we have coming up.”

There will also be a stall at the Women’s World Day of Prayer from 10.30am on March 6 at Droitwich Baptist Church.

Anyone wanting more information on how they can be part of the Fairtrade Droitwich campaign should call Emily Bowsher on 01905 770364.
