Saints Scoop Fair Win

An Otley school has won our regional film competition and was presented with an award on Monday 28th May by Greg Mulholland MP. The ‘Take a Step’ film competition was organised by Fairtrade Yorkshire and launched during this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight.

The challenge was to tell the story about the journey of a Fairtrade product. The winners are from Otley All Saints School, who created an informative and interesting film about the journey of cocoa, from grower to chocolate bar.  Scarlet Hannan-Webber, one of the pupils involved in the film, said “It was so interesting because we got to learn more details about Fairtrade products. Our team was so co-operative and everyone really enjoyed being creative and thinking outside the box!”

Local MP and long time supporter of Fairtrade, Greg Mulholland MP, said: “I am delighted that Otley All Saints School have won the Fairtrade Yorkshire ‘Take a Step’ schools’ competition. It is a fantastic video that really gets the point across about the importance of supporting Fairtrade, so a big well done to all those that took part and congratulations to the winners!
