Major prize for IOM Fairtrade group

The Isle of Man Fairtrade Group has won a major UK accolade.

The voluntary organisation was named winner in the Oustanding Campaign category of the Fairtrade Foundation's national awards. 

It won the title for the Fairtrade conference held for primary school children earlier this year. 

Judges congratulated the group for its work in raising the profile of the Fairtrade movement locally and influencing the behaviour of local consumers and businesses.

Director of the One World Centre, Rosemary Clarke, says the Fairtrade foundation is celebrating its 20th birthday this year, which is how the competition came about.
