I know that if I sell to a Fairtrade buyer that I'll get fair treatment.

Fairtrade On Tour

Bilton Gala May 2010

After a busy Fairtrade Fortnight, Harrogate Fairtrade Group was out again with a stall at what must surely be the first Gala of the year at Bilton on May Day. Despite the less than perfect weather the two boxes of Fairtrade bananas we were giving away (kindly donated by Sainsburys) went very quickly. We also had a quiz about fairtrade for people to try their hand at. On the whole children seemed to do better than adults, which is encouraging for the future. Congratulations to Aidan Howell who won the Fairtrade hamper, although there were several entries just behind him, Aidan only got one answer wrong, very well done!
