Sheringham fairtrade breakfast

Successful Fairtrade breakfast in Sheringham

Sheringham has continued to embrace its Fairtrade status, and hosted a breakfast event on Friday March 11 to promote Fairtrade products.  Many local people, including those from Weybourne, West Runton, Cromer and Overstrand supported the Big Fairtrade Breakfast and Coffee Morning. Tony Rothe reports.

The slogan was "Sit down for breakfast, Stand up for farmers". Participants enjoyed Fairtrade food from many parts of the world in their tea, coffee, muesli, sugar and marmalade. Beck Farm supplied tasty brown eggs at a very reasonable price, and the organisers were able to ensure that local farmers were getting a fair price for the milk by buying it at Morrisons.

Brenda said “Sheringham continues to deserve its title of being a Fairtrade Town. Besides a very enjoyable morning we were able to send a cheque for £205.25 to Traidcraft Exchange, the Fairtrade Charity which helps desperately poor people existing on less than one meal a day. Many in Bangladesh have been given tea plants, and are enjoying a regular income from the tea leaves. It would be good to know we can buy Fairtrade tea grown by them.”
