Fairtrade Fortnight Kicks off in Style

Fairtrade Fortnight at Notre Dame got off to a flying start this week with a well-attended Bake sale held in the upper common room on Wednesday.

Willing volunteers provided a range of home baked treats for hungry staff and students. This was not only intended to raise funds for charity but perhaps more importantly to raise awareness of Fairtrade products and issues.

Our Fairtrade team headed by Miss Case have worked hard to create an exciting range of events which you can join in.

Don’t forget to break out your wellies and hippy hats next Thursday when Notre Dame holds its own Fairstock festival in the main hall at 1.00pm.

Entrance is free and you will be able to groove to some cool music while you sample Fairtrade crafts, cakes and lemonade as well as having the opportunity to have your picture taken in the Fairtrade booth. Before you leave, don’t forget to buy your balloon label for Friday’s Great Balloon Release.

This takes place on the walkway outside the hall at 1.30 and will mark the end of a tremendous two weeks of Fairtrade fun.
