BAFTS annual conference comes to York

Zuza just trade goodweave fair grounds

York Fair Trade Forum members were delighted to have the chance to attend some of the BAFTS (British Assocation for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers) annual conference which was held this year in York. As you can see, Fair Trade Ted had a great time looking round the lovely stalls and doing what he likes best – posing with anything fair trade related. As well as talks from producers and suppliers, there was an excellent evening of entertainment including a fair trade-themed quiz compiled by outgoing BAFTS chair Joanna Pollard (a Forum member) and also exciting York-based bingo. A great opportunity to meet like-minded people – and we won’t dwell on the fact that the team made up mainly of Forum members won the quiz. It wasn’t a fix, honestly!
