On Friday, Pat McFadden MP hosted his annual Fairtrade Coffee Morning today at St. John's Methodist Church in his constituency.
Pat McFadden said, "Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who braved the weather to come out and support the event.
Secondly, I'd like to thank Revolver World Coop Coffee Group who sponsored the event and provided fantastic Fairtrade coffee for everyone."
Wolverhampton’s history of fair trade kicked off in 1991 where we saw the first fair trade shop opening and the selling of fair trade products. In 2004, the City became a fair trade city and in 2016 the Fairtrade Foundation renewed that status. Since then, the Fair trade movement has developed significantly in the city; Wolverhampton has its own (Fairtrade) chocolate bar and most recently in November launched its very own ‘Wolverhampton Coffee’.
Pat concluded, "Finally, I'd like to announce that going forward ALL of my coffee mornings will now only serve fair trade coffee. In addition to this, all donations given at the coffee mornings will be donated to my and Revolver World Coop Coffee Group's chosen charity of the year- Friends of Alfie Johnson."
