Su Steenberg with University of Bath's Fairtrade Gold award

On Friday 11 March we received a Fairtrade Gold award in the category of Best Fairtrade University or College in the South West 2016.

It's the second year running that we've been given the award and we're absolutely delighted that our continued support for the Fairtrade Foundation has been so successful.

Su Steenberg, PA to Director of AHS/Project Coordinator, was at the awards and collected the certificate on behalf of the University.

The event took place at the At-Bristol Science Centre and hosted by ethical beauty and wellbeing expert, Liz Earle MBE, whose range of Fairtrade Gold jewellery was recently displayed at The Edge.

Following on from Fairtrade Fortnight, the ceremony continued the Sit Down for Breakfast, Stand Up For Farmers campaign which highlights the plight of poorly paid farmers in developing countries. This is something that is at the very core of the Fairtrade initiative.

There were 68 organisations shortlisted for the awards, including the University of Bath. Between us we've spent nearly £500,000 on Fairtrade products, making a massive difference to the lives of producers in developing countries.
