A musical day with Fairtrade

IMG_20180602_153100Winchester Ukulele Festival – a big event in the Ukulele year – took place on Saturday 2 June. Our Fairtrade Network was invited to set up a stall to spread the word about Fairtrade. The stall contents were provided by St Mark’s Church, Oliver’s Battery, one of the several Fairtrade Churches within the city. The warm sunny day gave us some concerns about the chocolate bars which were among the most popular items on sale, but all was well. We had an enjoyable day chatting to existing and new Fairtrade supporters and hearing about their ukulele playing, as well as selling a range of Fairtrade goods. And we were surprised and gratified to receive a £200 donation from the Festival organisers after the event. Many thanks for this!
