Wolverhampton City Fairtrade Partnership's 2019 AGM was held on Friday 15th February. We were delighted to be able to present the Mayor and Mayoress with the certificate for the renewal of the City's Fairtrade status.

The University of Wolverhampton kindly hosted the event with a delicious and ethical fairtrade breakfast.  Around 35 people attended, representing groups and organisations from across the city, including two MPs, several councillors, the Leader of the Council, faith representatives and others from the statutory voluntary sector. We look forward to more events during Fairtrade Fortnight from 25th February to 10th March 2019.
