Last week at Beckfoot we proudly celebrated 2018 Fairtrade week. The theme was 'Come on in' supporting the millions of farmers and workers who produce the food we love but still don’t earn enough to feed their own families.
Mrs Kettlewell ran a week of powerful and insightful assemblies introducing us to the people behind our food, showing us that when we choose Fairtrade we are helping to ensure that the person who grew the banana you are eating, or the coffee beans we use to make our drinks, are paid fairly for their work.
On Wednesday students ran a Fairtrade stall selling only Fairtrade products. This was very popular and almost sold out before first break! On Friday a Fairtrade smoothie bar was set up which was very successful raising lots of money to donate to Fairtrade.
