Brownies and Fair Trade
Chelford Brownies held a Fair Trade tea party recently, as part of their work towards the Big Brownie Birthday badge commemorating 100 years of Brownies.
They invited the Rev Robin Mosley, Vicar of Brereton Church, and his wife Lesley — both local Fair Trade representatives — to visit their meeting and tell them about Fair Trade. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
The girls played a game to identify which Fair Trade food or craft item came from which country around the world, and Robin gave them a slide presentation about a visit he and Lesley had been on, to learn about Fair Trade coffee growing in Peru. Lesley set up a Fair Trade stall, and the Brownies and their mothers were able to buy Fair Trade food and craft items.
During the evening, five Brownies completed their Hostess badge, and shared their home-made cakes and biscuits with guests at the tea party.
