International Fairtrade Fortnight (when the public is asked to think about and support FT products when shopping), takes place from February 26 to March 11 this year.

Clonakilty is Ireland’s first Fairtrade town, and will celebrate it’s 15th anniversary since being awarded this prestigious status, this September.

In the meantime, the local committee have organised the following during FT Fortnight:-

(1) A short on-street survey carried out randomly by young volunteers during the fortnight – with every participant entered into a draw for a Fairtrade Hamper.

(2) An online ‘Survey Monkey’, which will be on their Facebook page also for the duration of FT Fortnight

(3) A talk by a Clon FT committee member to the Darrara Community on February 27 on ‘Trade, Inequality and Poverty’ as part of a ‘Gorta – Self Help Africa’ workshop.

(4) Free workshop on Chocolate-making at the Clonakilty Chocolate premises (pre-booking essential).
