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!

The people of Ealing Hospital were blown away by the breathtaking jewelry and crocheted items on show at our Fairtrade Fair. As well as the jewels, we also had stalls run by Hanwell Friends of Sabastiya (HAFSA), Shares Interest and donations from The Co-operative. The event proved successful in raising awareness about the vast amount of Fairtrade products available- not just Tea, Coffee and Sugar.
Also, congratulations to the winner of the prize draw for a lovely Men’s Grooming Kit, donated by The Big Green Smile, Paulett!!
