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
