27 February

The Humanities department is taking part in Fairtrade Fortnight from the 25th of February to the 10th of March. This year, Fairtrade Fortnight will focus on cocoa. Farmers of this much-loved product have seen prices fall to crisis levels in the last few years, making life incredibly difficult for cocoa farmers. This is especially true in West Africa where most cocoa is grown. The drop in cocoa prices means it's now more important than ever to shout about why choosing Fairtrade is so important. If you would like to donate any spare change to a very important cause, there will be collections taking place over the next couple of weeks. Further information can be found in the Humanities corridor.
