Hyslop Highlights Importance of Fairtrade in Whitburn
Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has highlighted the importance of Fairtrade in Whitburn in her constituency at their Coffee Morning on Saturday. (7th Nov)
Speaking after the event, Ms Hyslop said;
“I was delighted to attend Whitburn’s coffee morning at the weekend. The Fairtrade initiative helps to alleviate poverty and give opportunities to producers and workers who are economically disadvantaged due to the conventional trading system.
“As well as Whitburn Bathgate, Uphall and Linlithgow have all achieved Fairtrade town a status, which is a credit to the hard work of the local steering groups. Organising an event like this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the importance of Fairtrade status in our local communities.”
