Notre Dame goes bananas for Fairtrade Fortnight!

Fairtrade fortnight

Students and staff took part in “Fairtrade Fortnight” last week, an annual event which raises awareness of the important cause and one which Notre Dame always fully embraces!

This year, everyone was treated to an informative and thought-provoking assembly, focussing on Taylor’s of Harrogate tea and how the company aim to promote and adhere to Fairtrade ideals. Perhaps the most exciting part of the assembly was the ‘Gladiators’ style pugil-stick battle using inflatable bananas!

Thank you to all the students who presented in assembly, to the Geography department for organising the event and to Andrew Sullivan for refereeing the inflatable banana tournament!
