Try the taste of a Fairtrade cuppa
Published Thursday 23rd February 2012
To help launch the annual Fairtrade Fortnight, local organisers are arranging a “Big Brew” and are inviting everyone to join them for a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee.
The Big Brew will be held in Ipswich at the Borough Council's Tourist Information Centre in St Stephen's Church this Saturday, 25th February, from 10.30am to 2.30pm. It is part of a national initiative by Traidcraft, the UK's leading fair trade organisation, which encourages schools, churches, workplaces and any other groups to host a Fairtrade tea party during Fairtrade Fortnight.
The cost of a cuppa - and a cookie - at the Big Brew event is just £1 and that's Fair enough!
Ipswich has earned recognition as a Fairtrade Town and the certificate is on display at the Tourist Information Centre.
Fairtrade Fortnight takes place from 27th February to 11th March.
