Win �150 to spend on Fairtrade products at Anglia Co-op

And buying Fairtrade really does help to make a difference – the premium paid to farmers has benefited an estimated seven million growers, workers and their families in 58 countries by providing things like hospitals, schools, community centres, drinking water supplies, roads and play equipment, as well as ensuring a fair wage.

TAKE a step towards helping to change the lives of millions of people across the world.

From February 27-March 11 we are all being challenged to ‘take a step’ towards Fairtrade – a move that would help generate millions of pounds for needy families in Third World countries.

This year’s Fairtrade Fortnight is encouraging us all to sample Fairtrade products – taking a small step like swapping your tea to Fairtrade tea; or a bigger step like asking all of your colleagues to do it, too.

You won’t find a bigger choice of Fairtrade food products than at your local Anglia Co-operative store in Littleport, with more than 130 Co-operative products and more than 50 branded Fairtrade items on the shelves.
