Mad Hatter's Tea Party at Lincolnshire Community Voluntary Service to mark Faritrade Fortnight.

Inventive ways of marking Fairtrade Fortnight were dreamt up by the committee behind Grantham’s Fairtrade status.

Among them were a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service, where senior community development officer Ruth Copleston was the Queen of Hearts. The tea party was laid on by the Grantham Fairtrade Town Committee in partnership with Jubilee Church for a group of teens with learning disabilities from Grantham Additional Needs Federation.

Ruth represents LCVS on the Fairtrade committee which has just secured Fairtrade Town status for Grantham for a second year.

The tea party was one of a string of events held. During the fortnight, Ruth and Heidi Haxeltine, LCVS community development officer, took a basket of Fairtrade goodies and promotional information about the scheme around some of the 30 or so businesses based at Autumn Park Business Centre, in Dysart Road.
