All's fair in love — and trade

There was plenty of love in the air when pupils at Bishop Bell School sent parcels of Fairtrade chocolates to their Valentines this week.

The pupils in the school's global awareness group created the gifts of chocolates tied up with ribbons and organised surprise deliveries around the school.

The event caused lots of excitement and also promoted Fairtrade products.

The school hopes to achieve the Fairtrade School Award by promoting Fairtrade products.

These products ensure that producers in developing countries receive a fair price for their goods, the security of long term contracts as well as guaranteeing minimum working conditions.
