Aston Fairtrade Fortnight 2017

The Fairtrade Steering Group would like to thank everyone who got involved in this year's Fairtrade Fortnight, which was encouraging people to put Fairtrade into their break. 2017 is an extra special year for Aston as it marks our 10th anniversary of being a Fairtrade University! 

Events included a cake cutting, tea tasting, Fairtrade sample giveaway, chocolate truffle making and an interesting presentation given by Mandy Gardner from the Fairtrade Foundation. Have a look at some of the highlights below.
