For Fairtrade Fortnight this year, running from Monday, February 29 to Sunday, March 13, Rutland Fairtrade Steering Group will be holding a Big Fairtrade Breakfast at the Methodist Church Hall in Northgate, Oakham on Saturday, March 5 from 10am to midday.

The breakfast, made up of bacon rolls, pancakes with honey and jam, bananas, fruit juice, coffee and tea, will all be made from Fairtrade and locally sourced ingredients.

Short videos will also be shown of some Fairtrade producers at the event.

Profits will go to Traidcraft Exchange – the oldest and largest pioneering fair trade charity in the UK.

Change Agents UK, a not-for-profit organisation, based at Oakham railway station is hosting a Fairtrade coffee and cake morning for early commuters.

The event will be held on March 1 from 6.15am to 11.15am at the station.

There will also be a Fairtrade Breakfast from 10am on Thursday, March 3 at 25 The Nook in Whissendine.

Richard Baggott said, “Fairtrade Fortnight reminds us all of the difference we can make to the lives of millions of people who provide us with our daily food. By choosing to buy Fairtrade marked products we are helping to provide living wages for farmers, sustainable farming, clean water, health clinics for their families and schooling for their children.”
