Fairtrade Fortnight

Jason joined Holly Lynch MP to host the ‘Cotton on to Fairtrade’ event in Parliament. The event was to highlight the start of Fairtrade Fortnight and to launch of the new All Party Parliamentary Group for Fairtrade of which Jason and Holly are Co-chairs. The new APPG was inspired by Holme Valley Fairtrade who met Jason in August last year.

“They compellingly made the case for a group in Parliament to highlight the issues facing farmers in developing countries and asked if Holly Lynch and I would be able to create this new APPG” said Jason. The Parliamentary event was attended by the Honley High School Fairtrade Forum students, the Holme Valley Fair Trade group, Fairtrade Foundation, the Co-Op and over 30 MPs.
