The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.
However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem.
We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2017.
When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves - the Fairtrade movement is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities for Fairtrade. Your actions help shoppers to make choices that change the lives of farmers and workers.
The Phoenix community are joining thousands of others across the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight to help our friends, neighbours, colleagues and communities to put Fairtrade in their break and take exploitation out.
On Friday 3rd February, Phoenix joined schools across the UK for a mega maths fundraising day.
We celebrated maths and raised money for the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day, a national fundraising event for schools.
We spent all afternoon being maths mavericks and some of our parents came too!
Every pound we raise counts towards the NSPCC’s fight for every childhood!
Holocaust Memorial Day is a national commemoration day in the United Kingdom dedicated to the remembrance of those who suffered in The Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. It was first held in January 2001 and has been on the same date every year since. The chosen date is the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp by the Soviet Union in 1945.
