Press Release: Southend High School for Boys get busy for Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight proved to be a busy fortnight at Southend High School for Boys, Prittlewell Chase, Southend. Fairtrade chocolate sales raised £380 and thirty boys took part in a chocolate treasure hunt organised by Joe Palmer and Lewis Saville in their Lower 6th.

The staff took part in a Fairtrade wine Tasting session – the wine being kindly supplied free by The Co-operative Membership. “Out of the Earth” florist shop supplied a beautiful table decoration for this event. Based in Southchurch Road, Southend, they are able to provide Fairtrade flowers in arrangements.

The Big Swap competition was won by Tom Cerson 9st2, who managed to persuade his parents to purchase Fairtrade products in the supermarkets over the fortnight.

A huge thank you in advance goes to the SHSB Parents Association who have agreed to serve Fairtrade drinks at future concerts and will be raffling a Fairtrade hamper at the forthcoming Spring Concert on 30th March.
