Wigan Borough Co-op Members Fairtrade Group needs you!

To keep our Fairtrade town status we need to keep working on raising awareness and increase the number of business offering Fairtrade products in the borough. We need help as follows:-

BUSINESSES

We need more businesses in the borough to stock Fairtrade products, if you stock a minimum of two Fairtrade products you qualify to go in our Fairtrade directory and receive free advertising for your business.  Your business will appear in our directory on the website and our printed copy of the directory which is handed out to the public at our various events throughout the year.  So whether you’re a café, pub, hotel, shop, or any other type of business, and stock fairtrade products please get in touch and call 01942 674 314 or email enquiries@wiganfairtrade.org.uk

VOLUNTEERS

Do you have a few hours to spare and are interested in Fairtrade?  We need people who can become regular members of our group, or just occasionally help out every so often at events we hold.  If your interested in finding out more please contact us or come along to our monthly meeting.  This is held the 1st Monday of every month at Lowton Community Centre at 7.30pm, call 01942 674 314 or email enquiries@wiganfairtrade.org.uk for more info.

CHURCHES

Does your church use Fairtrade products, or is a registered fairtrade church?  If so get in touch and let us know.  By telling us about your church you can help us maintain Wigan Fairtrade town status.  If your interested in your church becoming a registered Fairtrade church visit www.fairtrade.org.uk for more information.

SCHOOLS

Does your school use Fairtrade products, or is it a registered Fairtrade school? If so get in touch and let us know. By telling us about your school you can help us maintain Wigan Fairtrade town status.  If your interested in your church becoming a registered Fairtrade School visit www.fairtrade.org.uk for more information.

WIGAN CONSUMERS

You as a consumer in Wigan can help us by asking for shops, cafes and businesses to stock more fairtrade products, the only way we can increase Fairtrade usage in the borough is through demand and the Wigan public asking retailers to stock Fairtrade.  Come along to one of our events and have a chat with us, we can give you cards to request your local businesses stock more fairtrade products, or alternatively call 01942 674 314 or email enquiries@wiganfairtrade.org.uk

Finally a big THANK YOU to the public and businesses of Wigan, without you buying Fairtrade or stocking Fairtrade products we would not have achieved Fairtrade Town status. Please continue to help us keep up the good work.
