As part of Fair Trade Fortnight (22nd Feb-7th March) St David’s Shopping Centre in Cardiff will be hosting a tea dance.
The theme of FT14 this year is ‘The Big Swap’. We are all being encouraged to swap one of our everyday items for a fair trade item – in particular, tea. In the UK we drink 165 million cups of tea a day and just 10% of these are currently fair trade so a significant number of tea pickers are still not getting a fair deal.
The tea dance aims to promote fair trade tea – there will be samples to try out while you enjoy the dance displays and join in the lessons yourself!
The event takes place on Saturday 27th February from 11am to 3pm and is completely free. We’d love to see you there – just head for the area outside Marks & Spencer and Debenhams.
