CHILDREN at Newton Primary School celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight.
The two-week celebration kicked off with an assembly by Matthew Sutton of And Albert, the Fairtrade shop on Eastgate Row.
Matthew explained to the children what a difference Fairtrade makes to people’s lives in some of the poorest parts of the world.
The school’s eco-committee members then sold Fairtrade snacks and badges as well as small musical instruments and jewellery.
The pupils also drew and decorated their own footprint to form a display in the hall to represent ‘Taking a Step’ for Fairtrade.
During the fortnight more than £300 worth of Fairtrade goods were sold, helping poor people to earn a fair income.
