Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole are proud to be a Fairtrade Towns.
This means that our town’s businesses, schools, communities, faith groups and BCP Council supports Fairtrade and the good that it does worldwide. Many farmers and workers who grow our food aren’t being paid fairly and this has a direct impact on their lives, leaving them unable to feed their families, afford medical care and schooling for their children, and invest in better farming. Come and find out more at our stand!
