Dunbar Fairtrade Group will once again celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight with its popular coffee morning, to be held in Dunbar Town House on Saturday 28 February from 10am to 12pm.
Nigel Bird said: “Our annual coffee morning is always a happy occasion, and we welcome everyone to come along and enjoy a Fairtrade cuppa along with home baking.
” We suggest a donation of £1.50 for adults and 50p for children – this covers everything, including a raffle ticket.
“Home baking and raffle prizes will be donated by local businesses and supporters, and there will also be a stall selling Fairtrade goods.
“Our new banner reading ‘Buy Fairtrade in Fairtrade Fortnight’ will be displayed outside Lauderdale House.
“We are pleased that Dunbar Primary School children will once again be entering a poster competition to advertise the coffee morning.”
Nigel added: “In Dunbar it is easy to buy key Fairtrade products such as tea, coffee, sugar, chocolate and bananas. Buying Fairtrade helps more than 1.4 million farmers and workers by giving them a fair price and a premium to spend on development. We consumers benefit too, by getting high quality goods produced in environmentally friendly conditions.”
