It's Fair Trade Fortnight, and St Martin's Christian Union club held a bake sale to raise awareness and funds. Fair Trade enables farmers and workers to receive a fairer deal. This means more money to feed their families, more money for education, more money to access health services, and the opportunity for a decent future.
We used ingredients carrying the Fair Trade mark such as sugar, cocoa and chocolate. Students baked the goodies together in the food tech room after school, so it was a real collaboration of culinary talent. The following morning, the cupcakes, cookies and brownies went on sale, raising a respectable total of £45.75 for the Fair Trade Foundation. Putting compassion and justice in to action definitely left us with a sweet taste in our mouths.
