The Fairtrade Group marked International Women’s Day on Friday by hosting a fair supporting the “She deserves: a living income” campaign.
The Fairtrade Group encouraged attendees to complete one of the “She deserves” postcards urging the UK Government to ensure that living incomes are paid to cocoa farmers – women farmers suffer the most from low wages – to enable them to fight their way out of poverty.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the event!

Well done to everyone who came into the school to support Health Week.
A coffee morning was held in the school on Friday morning to support the MacMillan Cancer Care’s “World’s biggest coffee morning” event. The school raised a fantastic £428.92 in aid of the cancer charity.
A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who baked, served coffee/tea and bought cakes on the day to make the event such a success.
