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!
