A Weston jewellery firm has taken part in the ‘biggest Fairtrade coffee break on Earth’ to support Fairtrade farmers and the fight against climate change.
The coffee morning at Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery was part of the World Fairtrade Challenge, during which Fairtrade coffee fans across the globe counted how much Fairtrade coffee they drank from Friday to Sunday last weekend.
The visitors at the coffee morning included Sue Bentley, national campaign committee chairwoman at the Fairtrade Foundation.
She said: “Sometimes it takes just a small conversation to encourage people to swap to Fairtrade.”
About 40 people took part at Harriet Kelsall, drinking 50 cups between them.
