Lowestoft Fairtrade event to be held in town hall

The Lowestoft Fairtrade Committee and Waveney District Council are hosting a special Autumn 'Fair-break' at Lowestoft town hall, on Wednesday, October 3.

The event, which will take place between 11am and 2pm in the council chamber, will provide an opportunity for people to learn about Fairtrade, including how it benefits the developing world and why Lowestoft is officially a Fairtrade town.

There will be food and drink to sample and taste, gift stalls, multi-media displays and information to help everyone get a better idea of what the cause is all about.

Entry is free.

There will be a raffle to help raise funds for the committee to carry on its work promoting Fairtrade.
