Fairtrade Fortnight

‘Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers!’

Fairtrade fortnight began this week and at Westholme we always support this important initiative. This year the theme is “sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers!” We can support farmers and workers to put food on the table for their families by harnessing the power of a Fairtrade breakfast.

We supported this in school with the help of Cath Greenlees, our Fairtrade liaison representative. She is an incredibly supportive friend to our school community and along with the Year 11 Fairtrade a stall was set up in the Learning Resource Centre for students and staff to visit at break and lunch time.

The stall had many items for sale including notecards, ornaments, stationary, jewellery and chocolate!

Thank you to everyone who supported the stall, approximately £620 was raised on the day.
