IT’S a step in the right direction – buy Fairtrade and you will be helping to change the lives of millions of people in the developing world.

During Fairtrade Fortnight – from February 25 until March 10 – we’re being urged to take a step towards Fairtrade products and help to generate millions of pounds for the needy in Third World countries.

Take a step towards Fairtrade tea or coffee, for example – and encourage your friends, colleagues and family to do so, too.

In 2011 sales of Fairtrade certified products in the UK hit £1.3billion – providing money for things in the third world that we take for granted… like fresh water, schools, hospitals and roads.

There are scores of Fairtrade products at your local Anglia Co-operative foodstores at Constable Road, St Ives; Old Great North Road, Eaton Socon; and Newtown Road, Ramsey – and today’s Hunts Post gives you the chance to win one of three prizes of £150 worth of vouchers to sample Fairtrade yourself.

Even if you are not lucky enough to win the prize, you can still gain – by saving £6 the next time you spend £40 at the Anglia Co-operative foodstores at St Ives, Eaton Socon and Ramsey with the special coupon on this page.

Buying Fairtrade products really does help to make a difference in 58 third world countries. Anglia Co-operative head of marketing and PR, Jill Basson, says: “As a co-operative, we believe in social responsibility and self-help, so we want a better deal for growers and producers in developing countries.
