By the kind invitation of the headteacher, last Saturday we were off to Barton-le-Clay to run a fair trade stall at the Orchard School Easter Egg Hunt. Parents and their children had great fun finding clues in the grounds before coming indoors to enjoy refreshments and a variety of stalls and a tombola. Fortunately the staff realised in time that our van was parked on top of one of the clues!
Best sellers on this occasion were cards from ‘Cards from Africa’, mini ceramic animal shaped candle pots with aromatic wax (great for birthday cakes!) from Shared Earth, glitzy boxes from Traidcraft and woven elephant patterned purses from Namaste. This is one of the few occasions when we don’t display chocolate on the stall as there is so much of it already on other stalls and in the tombola!
