Annual Harrow Fairtrade summit on tomorrow
People are being invited to a summit to find out how to make Harrow a Fairtrade borough.
Harrow Borough Council will be hosting the annual event tomorrow evening from 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Harrow Civic Centre, in Station Road.
Fairtrade is an international campaign which aims to ensure growers and labourers receive what it sees as a fair price for growing and producing crops such as sugar, coffee, chocolate, sugar and cotton.
Last year the council announced it would commit to achieving the Fairtrade Foundation's Fairtrade status and the free event tomorrow will be highlighting its progress.
The evening will also be a precursor to the start of Fairtrade fortnight, which will start on Monday February 24.
Schools and community groups across the borough will be taking part in activities to promote fair prices for farmer’s goods in the developing world as part of the national week of action.
