Luing Big Brew

The children of Luing transformed their classroom into a cafe for a Big Brew. This is in connection to the Human Rights work that the children are taking forward and to support Fairtrade Fortnight. Linda Leggett, an island resident and Fairtrade Tradecraft stall holder, set up a stall in the classroom to offer the visitors an opportunity to make their purchases.
As ever, the islanders turned out in force to support not only the children but to show support for Fairtrade and a growing understanding of the human rights agenda.

Not only did the visitors have FT tea and coffee but they feasted on selections of FT cakes and biscuits. The children invited the visitors to take a human rights lucky dip and to enter into discussion about their rights as adults and the rights of the child.

Donations of almost £80 were dropped into a bucket at the door and Linda was kept very busy at the stall with most of her stock being cleared.

A great success and a real statement of commitment to Fairtrade from the residents of Luing.
