Bananas again

Fairtrade bananas of course. Though today we weren't eating them, not in public anyway, but drawing together our submission for an award for the most imaginative way of promoting Fairtrade bananas during Fairtrade Fortnight. It was a bit of a trip down memory lane to go back over the planning and the detail of the event together, and a real eye opener to realise that we'd probably reached several thousand people at one level or another during the 24 hour period. Now I have to draw together the evidence and parcel it up for dispatch next week. Fingers crossed - we might win!
It was also a slightly sad occasion because the representative of Middlesbrough is leaving her present job and will no longer be part of any plans for future Tees Valley events. I look forward to meeting her successor.
Later in the day I went to ARC to follow up on our plans for our next Fairtrade event - wine tasting on June 11th. If you're in the Stockton area get in touch and buy a ticket - it'll be well worth it.
