FAIRLY traded goods ruled the roost at an event at Doncaster College.

The organisation put on a stall selling fairtrade goods at its main site in Doncaster town centre, at Doncaster Waterfront, as part of Fairtrade week.

The idea was to raise awareness of Fairtrade and to fight poverty by trading with poor nations.

Doncaster College volunteer chaplain Joan Reasbeck, organised the stall with the help of Christine Ogley and Wilma Gibson.

They brought Fairtrade items to sell to students and staff.

A spokesman said: “Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.”

The Fairtrade Foundation has licensed more than 3,000 Fairtrade-certified products for sale in the UK.
