Join us for our Official Launch this Thursday

We are celebrating our official launch this Thursday (26th Feb) 11:00-18:00 and you are warmly invited to join the party!

Pop in any time between 11 and 6 for a fairtrade cuppa and a slice of cake to help us celebrate.  You can play our game ‘Is it Fair’, and take action to encourage local supermarkets to stock Fairtrade bananas, as well as buy some Faitrade goodies.

The plan for the day:

Throughout the morning and afternoon: Peacemakers are teaming up with local schools to explore Fairtrade.  Children’s artwork on the theme of ‘what does peace mean to me?’ will be available to view in the Hub.

11:00 Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillor Mike Leddy will be meeting the children and viewing their artwork.

12:30 A special screening of the short film Fairtrade Matters: a thought-provoking glimpse into lives at the heart of Fairtrade.

14:00 Lord Lieutenant for the West Midlands Paul Sabapthy will be announcing the competition winner from the children’s designs.

16:00 Hugh Maw, a conscientious objector in WWII, will be signing copies of his new book about his experiences in the Friends Relief Service, delivering aid to the victims of war in 1946-48.

18:30 Reception at the Priory Rooms to hear from Matthew Burnett-Stuart about the links between WWI and today, and join the conversation on how we plan to promote peace & justice in Birmingham and work with the local community.  RSVP quick for this special evening event:

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
