There will be an opportunity to kick start your Christmas shopping early on Saturday at a popular annual event in Melton.
The Fairtrading Post in the town’s Market Place will be holding its 11th Fairtrade Christmas Preview from 9am to 8pm at Gloucester House.
Director Lynn Marriott said: It’s a wonderful opportunity to see some beautiful, unusual gifts, kick start your Christmas shopping, make an order if you like knowing that your purchases help people to work their way out of poverty.
“As usual, it’s free entry, and you get a free drink and a biscuit. There will be a wonderful array of hampers, gifts, homewares, jewellery and accessories to whet your Christmas appetite.”
Fairtrade helps lift individuals and communities out of poverty. As well as a fair price, producers are supported with training and their communities get a Fairtrade premium to improve water availability, schools and health.
