Fanfare for Fairtrade Yorkshire

The Fairtrade Yorkshire campaign was launched in the county’s historic capital city of York during Fairtrade Fortnight 2011.

The launch event which attracted over 2000 visitors included a rousing performance by the Golden Rail brass band.

Fairtrade Yorkshire Coordinator, Mark Dawson, commented ” It’s grand to see so much enthusiasm for the campaign.  Yorkshire has a proud tradition of campaigning for improved working conditions, and fairness in trade, and here we are poised to become the world’s first Fairtrade region. ”
