Fairtrade Fortnight Coming Soon!

Fairtrade Fortnight is close approaching. From 25 Feb - 9 March we hope to be joining with people across the UK in raising awareness of the Fairtrade cause.

Look out for special offers and events in your local Co-Operative Food Store. Find them on the Leigh Road, Broadway and London Road Leigh. Also check out the offers in other local shops and stores.

Remember to ask for Fairtrade products when buying things like, coffee, tea, sugar etc in any of Leigh's wonderful coffee shops, cafes and restaurants.

If you are business based in Leigh why not ask if the Staff room can become a Fairtrade zone where only Fairtrade coffee and teas is available.

Let us know of any events/activities/offers that your organisation is up to. We can publicise any Fairtrade happenings on this website. email info@fairtradeleigh.org.uk with your news.
