Volunteers, Campaigners and Producers celebrate 5 Years of London being the world’s largest Fairtrade city
In the Living Room (9th Floor) of City Hall in London, volunteers, campaigners, and producers came together to celebrate the five years that London has been certified a Fairtrade City. Through the work of companies and individuals and groups of all shapes and sizes in 23 boroughs across the capital, London is the largest Fairtrade city in the world. The event was celebratory and speakers spoke about their individual part in this momentous journey. There was food and drink, goody bags, lots of mixing and a celebration cake from the Jane Asher cake shop, in association with Divine Chocolate.
A workshop took place on Saturday 19 October in Jane Asher’s Cake Shop, Chelsea, supported by Divine chocolate. David Leslie led interested and enthusiastic visitors through the chocolate making workshop using Divine Fairtrade chocolate. David demonstrated techniques, tools and know-how – heart shaped truffles were produced effortlessly. There was plenty of tips and sampling of for instance fruit dipped in white chocolate.
