Your Local Fairtrade Town Group may host Community Events that churches in the area can join in with, or they may lend out Fairtrade resources, or man a Fairtrade Stall at your church fete, or donate an item for a Fairtrade Raffle. They may be able to sponsor one child to attend a Fairtrade Schools Conference, to make it financially easier for your school. See the Fairtrade Yorkshire site for links to Local Town & Village Groups
Fairtrade Workshops & Events
There are several local organisations willing to run Fairtrade Workshops and offer other Fairtrade Resources:
Leeds DEC is an educational charity set up by Oxfam in 1978. They offer hands on, creative, engaging workshops on Fairtrade and other topical global development issues which enhance the curriculum and build on school’s SMSC provision. They also offer teacher training on embedding Global Learning and have lots of resources for you to download, borrow and buy.
