Maybe this morning you enjoyed bananas from Columbia, coffee from Kenya or tea from India? “Before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world.” Martin Luther King Jr, A Christmas sermon on peace, 1967
Today marks the end of Fairtrade Fortnight for the working week. With the theme this year being Breakfast, we celebrated at Kingston Hill with pancakes and a variety of Fairtrade toppings. The tasty treats, as shown below were enjoyed by all, with everyone creating their own Fairtrade masterpieces. By early afternoon, all that remained of the spread was a few chunks of Fairtrade chocolate and a happily single pancake.
Fairtrade tea and coffee were also on offer in the staff rooms at both Kingston Hill and Roe Vale along with a bundle of KitKats which vanished within the week, proving Fairtrade Fortnight was a success all round.
