Portlethen Big Fairtrade Breakfast

The Fairtrade group at Portlethen Primary School are inviting the pupils and their families to join them for breakfast in support of Fairtrade Fortnight 2016.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day yet millions of farmers and workers in developing countries don’t earn enough to know where their next meal is coming from.

Portlethen School will join forces with the rest of the country by holding a Big Fairtrade Breakfast to support the farmers who grow some of our breakfast staples, such as coffee, tea, cocoa, honey and bananas.

Often the millions of people in poorer countries who grow our food don’t earn enough to feed their families properly or send their children to school. Fairtrade works to change this, by making sure companies pay a fairer price for what farmers grow, plus a little extra for them to invest in their communities or farms. Through Fairtrade, farmers and workers can make enough money to feed and look after their families.

Portlethen Primary’s Big Fairtrade Breakfast will be held on Wednesday and Thursday March 9-10, in the school hall, from 8.15-8.50am. Tickets are available from the school, priced £1.50 each.
