27th Feb: Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight takes place 27 Feb – 11 Mar 2012.
Fairtrade helps producers in the developing world to provide for their families. Many of these producers survive on plots as small as half an acre. We can play our part by buying products with the Fairtrade logo – tea, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, cotton goods. Parishes can also be involved in promoting Fairtrade. Is Fairtrade wine used at Mass in your parish? Why not organise a Fairtrade tea/coffee morning in your parish? Why not make your parish a Fairtrade Parish? See the guidelines on www.fairtrade.ie

QUIZ . As part of Fairtrade Fortnight activities, One World Society Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Fairtrade Committee are organising a Quiz in Clohessy’s Sin Bin, Howley’s Quay on Wed 7 Mar 2012 at 8pm. Tables of 4 - €20 per table. All are welcome.
