PRESS RELEASE: The Big Brew at Southend Central Library & Kent Elms Library

Southend Borough Libraries - Media Release February 2010

The Big Brew: Southend Central Library & Kent Elms Library

Monday 22nd February at Southend

Friday 5th March at Kent Elms

10am to 12pm

Come and join us for a cup of Fairtrade tea and a biscuit to celebrate the launch of Fairtrade Fortnight.

Southend Libraries are pleased to take part in The Big Brew, a national initiative by Traidcraft. The aim is to raise awareness of Fairtrade and the issues faced by tea producers in the developing world. Did you know that only 10% of tea sold in the UK is Fairtrade? Learn more about the tea trade and how you can make a difference to the lives of the tea growing communities, by joining Traidcraft’s campaign.

We will be serving Fairtrade tea, coffee and biscuits in return for a donation.

Come along and join us for a cuppa with a conscience!
