Media coverage: Southend Echo reports on Blenheim Primary

FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT BECOMES PART OF THE CURRICULUM
as reported in the Southend Echo, Wednesday March 16, 2011

Fairtrade fun was the order of the day as schoolchildren marked Fairtrade Fortnight.

Youngsters at Blenheim Primary School, Leigh, enjoyed activities ranging from tasting Fairtrade products to making 500 pictures for a bunting Guiness World Record attempt.

Other events saw youngsters wear Fairtrade clothing and browse at a craft fair, while staff raised £30 for the charity through a bake sale. Pupils wrote to local supermarkets to encourage them to stock Fairtrade products.
