The event was supported by Melton Mayor Jeanne Douglas who joined the group in sampling some of the delights of Fairtrade tea and coffee, muffins, flapjacks, jam and muesli.

One of Melton’s Fairtrading Post directors, Lynn Marriott said: “We had a really successful morning and raised around £80 from donations.

“The breakfast we ate highlighted how heavily we rely on farmers across the world.”

Fairtrade accreditation ensures producers are paid a fair wage so they can support their families.
