Fair Do’s is proud to be involved with the work of educating young fair traders in local schools. We are passionate about the message of fair trade reaching the younger generations and offer several services to teachers and pupils in order for this to happen.
Many groups from local schools take advantage of our sale or return service. They take our stock to their events or assemblies to sell and introduce their peers to the wide range of fair trade foods and crafts on offer.
We also welcome small groups of pupils with their teacher for a tour of the shop and stock room. During this tour, any questions about the shop and about fair trade in general can be answered, and the pupils take part in various activities to help broaden their knowledge of fair trade.
From 2019, with thanks to Wales for Africa for grant funding.
The fair trade shopping list is a game of anagrams to demonstrate the wide range of items available through fair trade in UK. We have two versions, one with letters only and one with pictures as well to help younger or less able pupils.
