Welcome to Horsforth, your Fairtrade town!

As we know 2020 and 2021 were challenging years for all of us & continues to be so. It’s never been as important to help the Fairtrade Farmers & their communities as they struggle with Covid in their countries, as well as the effects of climate change. The good news is that its as simple as ever, just look for the Fairtrade symbol when shopping. Buying just one Fairtrade item will ensure that the Farmers & their workers get a fair price & the Fairtrade Foundation can invest into their community.
