St Mary & St Michael Catholic Primary School

Ran a Fairtrade tuck shop at the end of Fairtrade Fortnight and raised £26.00 to help support our local Fairtrade Group for which we are
incredibly grateful.

They must also be congratulated as in April they were awarded a Fairtrade School Status by the Fairtrade Foundation.

Fairtrade Directory

Our directory which lists retailers, eateries, takeaways, and accommodation selling or using Fairtrade products will be available after lockdown from the Tourist Information Centre and the Library. However, in the meantime, it can be found on our website: www.garstangfairtrade.org.uk

Covid 19

In the face of the global Coronavirus Crisis, farmers and workers are playing a vital but sometimes forgotten role. Fairtrade farmers and workers are keeping shelves stocked around the world, but even more importantly they are working to keep their own communities safe. From preparing emergency food parcels to producing PPE, Fairtrade producers are helping some of the most vulnerable communities in the world get through this crisis.

Please spare a thought for all producers whose livelihoods have been affected by Covid 19. We thank them all and wish them well.
