Schools, businesses, churches and other organisations can all get involved in supporting and promoting Fairtrade. There is a scheme for schools and churches to become formally registered as Fairtrade schools and churches. The Dumfries Fairtrade Group will be happy to provide more information and support. Or visit www.fairtrade.org (The Fairtrade Foundation) One of the goals for maintaining our status as a Fairtrade town involves listing businesses and other organisations that use Fairtrade products – so if this includes your business or organisation, we’d love to hear from you. About the Dumfries Fairtrade Group We work to raise awareness of Fairtrade in Dumfries. As a group we meet monthly to plan events such as the Fairer World Fair (held each November) and local events for Fairtrade Fortnight. We campaigned for Dumfries to become Fairtrade Town and we are now working with other Fairtrade Groups in the region for Dumfries and Galloway to be a Fairtrade Zone. The group meets regularly usually at The Meeting Room, St John’s Church, Lovers Walk, Dumfries DG1 1LW Would you like to join us? Please contact us – dumfriesfairtradeATyahooDOTcoDOTuk if you would like more information.
