Ealing’s Divine Fairtrade

February 25th, 2015 Comments off

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.

Co-op Fairtrade School Fun

March 10th, 2012 Comments off

Greenford High School students enjoyed a visit from the Co-operative Fairtrade Ben&Jerry’s Ice-cream van on 7 March. The van gave our free samples of Fairtradeproducts, such as Ben&Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Farirtrade bananas, Fairtrade dark chocolate and Fairtrade oranges. The idea was to raise awareness about Fairtrade in schools… and it worked a treat!

The students were asked to fill out a quiz about the Co-op and Fairtrade; the first ones to correctly complete it were awarded an ice-cream – others got cookies or chocolate. The answers to the quiz were scattered all over the van, and all of the students had a fun time searching the outside of the van, and learning about Fairtrade as well!
