Midcounties Marks 25 Years of Fairtrade in Wolverhampton

The Midcounties Co-operative is marking the 25th anniversary of Fairtrade in Wolverhampton with the launch of brand new campaign to educate shoppers and local pupils on the importance of putting Fairtrade in their shopping basket. 

The Society has launched its #1Swap campaign in stores throughout Wolverhampton, encouraging shoppers to make a pledge to exchange one item in their shopping basket for a Fairtrade alternative, helping to give farmers a fair price and support better working conditions for suppliers.

Midcounties colleagues in Wolverhampton visited Graiseley Primary School to deliver an assembly on the importance of ethical food practices and lead a Fairtrade paper bag workshop that demonstrated how Fairtrade works.

The Midcounties Co-operative is a longstanding supporter of Fairtrade. Co-operative Retail Societies were one of the first UK supermarkets to sell Fairtrade bananas, while all its own-brand tea, coffee and chocolate ranges are Fairtrade certified. 

Sharifan Nasa, Headteacher at Graiseley Primary School, said: “It’s so important for children to understand the history of Fairtrade, and having the Midcounties team coming in to speak to our pupils really helped to make the lessons more engaging and memorable.

“We’d like to say thank you to Midcounties for taking the time to deliver the workshop.” 

Emma Pile, Regional Communities Ambassador for Wolverhampton at The Midcounties Co-operative, said: “Fairtrade is so important to us as a Society, and we hope that our activities here in Wolverhampton will help to highlight Fairtrade’s ongoing efforts to support better welfare for food producers, and prompt more people to make kinder decisions when they do their shopping.” 

“If we can encourage all of our shoppers and members to embrace our #1Swap campaign and include one more Fairtrade item in their basket, we can collectively make a huge difference to the lives of farmers across the globe.”

Girls Active Awards 2019 - Future Leader

The future leader award is a primary school award which recognises an individual who has helped the teacher and/or mentor to deliver sport and physical activity session. They should also have encouraged others to take part, set a good example, and be passionate and enthusiastic.

Sanjana Chopra, from Graisely Primary in Wolverhampton, has been shortlisted for the Future Leader Girls Active Award.

Not only has her own commitment and passion for sport inspired other girls at school, Sanjana’s ability to coach, encourage and support her classmates has seen her shortlisted for this award.

Whilst sometimes shy, when it comes to taking part in sport her confidence really shines through, her teacher Mr Clarke, who nominated her tells us.

“Sanjana always gives 110% in all sporting activities and sets a good example to others. She often helps to officiate games and helps her fellow students in PE, after school clubs and extra-curricular activities.”

“She is a true credit to herself how she adapts to different situations and inspires those around her, particularly other girls in her class. Sanjana is able to achieve what many professional coaches struggle with and inspires young girls around her to take part in physical activity.”

Having become a strong swimmer through lessons outside of school, she soon began offering coaching and support when her class took part in lessons, demonstrating different techniques and helping the swimming coaches. In netball she helps officiate as well as gives players help with how to play and what they can try to do to improve next time.

It was this attitude to support her peers as well as the teachers in classes which stood out in the shortlisting process.
