Fairtrade Bake Off

The focus of this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight is the plight of small-scale cocoa growers around the world. Many of these are women, hence the Fairtrade Foundation’s slogan: ‘she deserves a living income’.

Bridgnorth Fairtrade Steering Group’s Plans for the fortnight include assemblies in all the town’s schools to inform children about Fairtrade. There will be a display in Sainsbury’s on Friday 1 March when the team will be collecting signatures for a petition to go to the Prime Minister; then on Saturday 2 March, a stall at the town’s market will be collecting more signatures.

On Thursday 7 March, you can enjoy hot chocolate and cake at Bridgnorth Baptist Church while taking part in the Great Bridgnorth Fairtrade Chocolate Bake Off: bakers are invited to use chocolate/cocoa and as many other Fairtrade ingredients as possible in a cake or buns. Bring your creation along for judging; there are prizes in three categories: Primary School Pupil, Secondary School Student and Adult, plus prize for Overall Winner. Email ray@valgill.free-online.co.uk for details.
