Youngsters created keyrings featuring Fairtrade fruits as part of three weeks of activities aimed at promoting the importance of Fairtrade terms for farmers in developing countries.

The children at Springwood Primary School, Bradford, which became one of the first schools in West Yorkshire to be granted Fairtrade status three years ago, also ran a chocolate and bun shop, hosted a tea party and made bunting.

The events were organised by the school’s Fairtrade Committee of six pupils.

Learning mentor Susan Little said: “It’s important they realise not all children are as fortunate as they are. Our children are very interested in children in other countries, particularly where school isn’t available to all.”
