Start of Fairtrade fortnight to Sunday 8 March

24 February 2020

What is Fairtrade Fortnight?

For two weeks each year thousands of individuals, companies and groups across the UK come together to share the stories of the people who grow our food and drinks and who grow the cotton in our clothes, people who are often exploited and underpaid.

What happened for Fairtrade Fortnight 2019?

The Fairtrade website is packed with interesting information about Fairtrade activities, in particular their work with cocoa farmers in West Africa, and you can download a PDF guide to planning activities during Fairtrade fortnight.


We are part of the rapidly expanding worldwide Transition Towns movement. The Black Isle is a peninsula of about 100 sq miles ENE of Inverness in Scotland, UK.
