Smallholder farmers grow 70% of the world’s food but make up half of the world’s hungriest people. The Fair Necessities Appeal is hoping to raise awareness of the plight of smallholder farmers, and show their entitlement to the ‘Fair Necessities’ of life.
You can play your part by coming to our Fairtrade Coffee Morning on Saturday 21st February from 10-12am in Selkirk Parish Church Hall. Enjoy Fairtrade refreshments and the chance to browse at our Fairtrade goods stall.
All profits will be donated to the Fair Necessities Appeal, and the UK government will match our donation so that we’ll be able to give twice as much.
