Fairtrade and Fancy Footwork

Posted 26 Apr 2010 by Marc Fowler in Past Events

As part of the nationwide Big Brew campaign, Fairtrade for Woodbridge hosted an afternoon ballroom and latin Tea Dance on the 7th March in Woodbridge Community Hall. Sixty eight dancers waltzed, quickstepped and cha cha cha’d to a wide variety of music including Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Jamie Cullum and Norah Jones.

Dancers were able to choose from the range of Fairtrade products available from the Traidcraft stall including chocolate, sugar, raisins, biscuits and footballs or sit down with a cup of Fairtrade tea and slice of home-made cake. Run as an event to promote Fairtrade in our town, as part of the ongoing Fairtrade Town campaign, participants said ‘it was a great success’.
