Future Events and Activities in Gosport


Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 -

26th Feb to 11th March

Fairtrade Fortnight is our annual chance to spread the word about Fairtrade and celebrate its success.

The theme for 2018 is Come On In and it’s from 26th Feb to 11th March. We’ll be putting details of local events on this page soon.

You can find ideas for getting involved and links to all the materials on the Fairtrade Foundation’s website

There are great resources and ideas for schools on their schools site

You can also find ideas for places of worship, including readings and prayers. The links are on our churches page




Calling all Cafes, restaurants, pubs, that serve Fairtrade Coffee.  

GFA has lots of attractive and informative “Table Talkers” – if you would like some for your tables – just contact us and we’ll deliver.


There were lots of special resources available for schools to use the last Fairtrade Fortnight in break time, assembly time and lesson time; from films and PowerPoints to lesson plans and educational games – find out what it’s like to be a producer without and with Fairtrade.  These are still relevant if you want to do something about Fairtrade in your school. Contact GFA for a short introductory PowerPoint presentation or go to the Fairtrade schools website here for more


Are you involved with any football teams in Gosport?

I expect you insist on Fair Play at all times!  Did you know that you could play and train with Fairtrade footballs?  - no need for any more exploitation of child labour just so our children can enjoy their footie!

Donna, one of GFA’s members, is visiting clubs and schools with a Fairtrade football and would love to talk to you about it – Why not invite her along to your club or school to find out more?

Contact her here

Here is a short  video about Fairtrade footballs

About various aspects of Fairtrade:

  • benefits to the producers, (a large range of products covered)
  • environment and climate change,
  • women,
  • Fairtrade at Work (for businesses)
  • conflict zones

Illustrated Presentations (PowerPoints)


  • schools,
  • churches/faith groups
  • voluntary oranisations
  • community groups
  • businesses

These range from general introductions about Fairtrade to PowerPoints about particular countries/producers and products. Some are based on personal travel and meeting with Fairtrade producers and would make a good starting point for talks to a wide range of audiences.
