The Edinburgh Fairtrade Festival, supported by Scotmid Co-operative, proved to be a successful event on Saturday at the Eric Liddell Centre in Morningside and hundreds of local people attended the event.
Organised by the Edinburgh Fairtrade City group and part of Fairtrade Fortnight, the event featured talks from international speaker Lousi Albadawi, Lord Provost, Donald Wilson and Scotmid’s Head of Corporate Communications, Malcolm Brown – all underlining the importance of Fairtrade and promoting its values.
Edinburgh has been a Fairtrade City since 2004 and the latest Fairtrade Festival event provided local people with an opportunity to gain greater insight plus have some fun in the process.
Scotmid’s Head of Corporate Communications, Malcolm Brown said: “It was great to see so many people attend the Edinburgh Fairtrade Festival – it is an event that is close to all our hearts and illustrates how important Fairtrade’s ethos continues to be.
“Once again, Scotmid were proud to be able to support such an incredibly worthwhile event and we will continue to promote the significance of Fairtrade in all of our communities.”
