Coffee morning a success…

The Dunbar Fairtrade Group would like to thank everyone who helped to make our Fairtrade Fortnight coffee morning a big success. More than 70 people came along, including many children, creating a busy and cheery atmosphere. Donors of food and raffle prizes included the Community Bakery, the Co-operative, the Crunchy Carrot, Tippecanoe and many other kind individuals.

The beneficial effect of Fairtrade on the lives of producers is highlighted in a moving short film just released by the Fairtrade Foundation, called Fairtrade Matters. It is available online and on DVD, at It shows how the hard lives of tea producers are improved by the extra income gained through Fairtrade, and through the Fairtrade Premium, which allows communities to invest in facilities such as an ambulance and a maternity clinic.

Thanks to one and all for making it such a lovely event.
