World Fair Trade Day. Vegetarian Meal at St Columba’s Church Hall, Priory Street, to mark the day. Entertainment from the Soundsfun choir and Djembebash. Arranged by York Fair Trade Forum. Tickets and more details available soon from Fairer World.
World Fair Trade Day is celebrated on and around the second Saturday of May all over the world. Fairer World always tries to mark the occasion, but we haven’t decided how to do so this year.
