As part of Fairtrade Fortnight, St John Fisher Primary School held a Fairtrade break time sale on Monday 6th March.

Local MP Siobhain McDonagh and Councillor Brian Lewis-Lavender came and helped sell the snacks that had been made using Fairtrade ingredients. 

There was an impressive spread of homemade cakes, biscuits and treats which had been sent in by parents as well as snacks made by children in school.  Many items were also generously donated by local businesses such as the Co-op and Waitrose.

The event was used to help teach the children about how Fairtrade works to make sure that all of the farmers and workers who grow our food are paid enough to feed their own families.
