Fairtrade Fortnight is an action-packed highlight of the year, when campaigners, businesses, schools and places of worship show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries.
Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 runs from 26 February to 11 March and this year we’d like you to join us in supporting the farmers and workers who grow our food. With Fairtrade we have the power to change the world every day.
Fairtrade opens doors.
COME ON IN
Dorset has ten Fairtrade towns, so look out for events and activities in your area, or make one happen yourself. Have a Fairtrade Feast for your friends and family. You can collect donations, hand out information, encourage people to visit our website, or just enjoy your Fairtrade coffee and a chat with friends.
Share you Fairtrade Feast pictures on Twitter or Instagram using #FairtradeFortnight and #FairtradeFeast.
