Fairtrade Chocolate Stall

Last Friday, to celebrate the end of Fairtrade Fortnight, Corpus Christi had a chocolate stall!

This year Fairtrade Fortnight focused on cocoa.  Farmers of this much loved product have seen prices fall to crisis levels in the last few years, making life incredibly difficult for cocoa farmers,

There was a range of products on offer, such as Kit-Kats, Maltesers,  Fairtrade chocolate cakes and even yummy hot chocolate.  Children in Year 5 helped to sell the products.
