As its London Fashion Week we thought we would remind all you budding fashionists that there is still time to enter our Fairtrade Fortnight schools competition.
Hopefully those of you in the North East will have heard about the competition on Real Radio (100-102FM) who is collaborating with us and Newcastle City Council on the project.
We are asking teachers to help us get classmates together and show us what Fairtrade means to them by designing a T-shirt. All you need to do is download the template off the website, scan in the designs and upload them using the form provided. We will be updating our blog with all the latest entries and you can also check them out on Real Radio’s website.
The winning class will see their designs professionally made and get their own private viewing at the cinema, celebrity style! Full details on how to enter can be found on the Real Radio website.
Even if you aren’t involved with a school in any way, don’t forget that from Monday 28th February to Sunday 13th March it’s Fairtrade Fortnight. You may remember last year’s Big Swap campaign which saw the UK swap one million household items for their Fairtrade alternatives. This year’s theme is Show Off Your Label so don’t forget to tell your friends and family about your Fairtrade purchases and most importantly let them know about Shared Interest!
