Sainsbury's Balham is supporting the 20th anniversary of Fairtrade by working with Telferscot Primary School. The retailer is the world's biggest retailer of Fairtrade products and to celebrate, colleagues at the Balham High Road store will be holding a Fairtrade poster activity with children from the Telferscot Primary School, based in Telferscot Road.
Children are being asked to design their own Fairtrade Logo, with entrees set to be put up on the store's customer notice board. The activity is being run to help the school learn more about Fairtrade. Fairtrade Fortnight is currently taking place from now up to the 9th March
The activity will also help the children learn more about the wide range of Fairtrade products which Sainsbury's sell. Along with selling 100% Fairtrade bananas and other popular products including Tea, Sugar and Chocolate, other lesser-known items which are 100% certified Fairtrade and sold in-store include plain cotton t-shirts, roses and even Taste the Difference Belgian Easter eggs.
Sainsbury's Balham Store Manager John Stanton said: "We're proud to be the biggest retailer of Fairtrade products and we're looking forward to working with the school to help them learn more about the wide range of Fairtrade products we sell".
