Something for everyone
THERE will be no trolley dash, but visitors will still be spoilt for choice.
To celebrate and support Fairtrade Fortnight, South Ribble Borough Council is having a Fairtrade shopping event on Monday, March 3.
Stalls in the Civic Centre, Leyland, will be decked with all kinds of Fairtrade items and gifts ranging from luxury chocolate, tea, coffee, cakes, wine to jewellery and other luxurious items.
Entrance to the event is free and it runs from 11amuntil 2pm.Hungry shoppers will have the opportunity to try some of the tasty goods before they buy, as well as browse through the wide variety of other Fairtrade goods on offer.
This year's Fairtrade event will also include a stall from 'Lush' handmade cosmetics, a sign of the growing success this event has.
This shopping event is just one of many Fairtrade initiatives the council undertakes to support Fairtrade in South Ribble.
Councillor Mike France, Fairtrade member champion for South Ribble Borough Council, said;
"The Fairtrade shopping event is a wonderful chance for the public to come along and get their hands on some quality Fairtrade goods. It is important that we encourage and support the sale of Fairtrade goods and raise the public's awareness of the variety of goods are on offer. I would like to encourage residents and visitors to come along to this event and show their support. The range of Fairtrade goods available is staggering and you could find a real bargain."
