On 24th February Divine’s amazing chocolate van visited Greenford High School to promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight. As well as sampling their array of delicious chocolates, students were able to purchase a bar from their huge selection- which included white chocolate and strawberries, toffee and sea salt and dark chocolate and chili and orange to name but a few. The students hugely enjoyed and appreciated the quirky van and learnt about Ghana– where most of Divine’s cocoa comes from.
Greenford High School is pursuing FairAware Status currently and this visit helped a lot!
The van then went on to Ealing Town Hall where it was open to council staff and the public, and it was very successful there too.

It then made a stop at Ealing Town hall with equal success!

During Ealing Fairtrade Group’s first Fair at Ealing Hospital, Sally from Shared Interest decided to purchase a Fairtrade Crochet brooch, from Love That Stuff, for their Fairtrade Fiver Challenge.
They purchased a beautiful Fairtrade Crochet brooch, and this has been ‘traded’ for a bubble foot massager, and then that was traded for chairs which are being upcycled.
Would you like to trade something for the upcycled chairs?
