On Friday afternoon Friends hosted a Fairtrade Cafe. Cakes had been baked by children and by staff.
The event was a great success, it was very busy and all the cakes and cookies were sold.
Due to the adverse weather conditions, tomorrow’s celebration at Leeds Civic Hall has been cancelled. The organisers are planning to re-schedule the event later in the year.
The ambassadors met again this week to ‘tweek’ the format of the workshop that they had designed to run at the celebration event on Friday.
They have been busy preparing with Ben creating food cards, Brooke and Isobel designing and making a poster while the other three trailed it.
A number of parents braved the cold and the snow this morning to join Lucy from the Co-op who was sharing a recipe for Fairtrade Cappuccino Cupcakes.
Everyone enjoyed the morning and couldn’t wait to try the cupcakes once they were baked – they were delicious!

This afternoon Hannah from Leeds DEC and children from Abbey Grange, Ireland Wood Primary and Woodlands Coop Primary met with us (Stella, Kai, Joshua, Isobel and Ben) in the café to talk about this year’s Fairtrade message and to plan workshops that each school would be running at the Fairtrade Celebration at Leeds Civic Hall on 2nd March.
To mark the end of our Fairtrade Fortnight we held a Fairtrade Café. There was a bake off competition with lots of amazing entries all using Fairtrade ingredients. The café was very well attended and everyone enjoyed sampling the cakes on offer.
A big thank you to Friends who organised and ran the café this afternoon.
It is Fairtrade Fortnight on Monday 27th February – Sunday 12th March.
We will be learning about what Fairtrade means and how we can help.
