|The Bridgend Fairtrade Partnership invites you to celebrate Bridgend Countys renewal of Fairtrade status, with a wine and cheese evening, at Pyle Co-op, on Oct. 19th (7-9.30pm).
An assortment of the Co-ops finest Fairtrade wine and cheese are available to titillate your taste buds. Hopefully this will be an inspiration for the Fairtrade quiz which will follow with great prizes for the winners. Even the deputy mayor is getting in on the act: accepting the Fairtrade renewal certificate on behalf of Bridgend County.
Entry to the event will be £4, with all monies going to local charity Sustainable Wales.
The event will inform as well as entertain; with community project, Valley and Vale (V&V) giving a presentation on their ground-breaking project with the Ethiopian NGO, the Gemini Trust.
The Gemini Trust, based in the Addis Ababa slums, aims to help the families of twins. V&V have been working with them: visiting Ethiopia and utilising Skype to foster social, artistic and trading links between Addis Ababa and Bridgend County.
Dont miss the opportunity to be among the first in Wales to see the unique arts and crafts that are helping lift Addis Ababas slum dwellers out of poverty.
