Join Holly and the local Fairtrade team for the official launch of Fairtrade Halifax on Sat 5th March!

Fairtrade products guarantee better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Buying Fairtrade products is a small change we can make to our buying habits which has a big difference on the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Fairtrade Halifax has been founded to promote Fairtrade in our town and to raise awareness amongst shops and consumers of the benefits of these products. The group is always looking to attract new members.

The ultimate aim is for Halifax to be awarded the prestigious status of 'Fairtrade Town', which would be a great draw for tourists and businesses.

Holly has organised a Fairtrade Coffee Morning on Saturday 5th March from 10am til noon, downstairs at Halifax Central Library. This will coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight and signal the official launch the campaign.

There will be Fairtrade stalls and a very special guest Fairtrade producers - Palestinian farmers Mohammed Hamada and Taysir Abasi - who will be giving a talk from 11.30am Please do come and join us.
