pupils' Fairtrade coffee morning raises charity funds
from a Burnham-On-Sea school raised cash for charity by holding
a unique Fairtrade coffee morning in
the town on Wednesday (March 9th).
children of St Andrew's School made and served coffee to visitors
at St Andrew's Church to promote the idea of 'Fairtrade', which
they have been studying as part of their lessons.
Graham Witts said the event was held as part of Fairtrade Fortnight,
with the children hosting a cafe, and offering information about
trade between the First and Third World markets.
The successful event raised £60 for the Traidcraft charity
to help those involved in Fairtrade overseas. Fairtrade
promotes fairness in trading between the first and third world
and allows third world farmers to keep a larger percentage of
the price of their goods rather than it becoming a supermarket
