Help break the world record...

Create the Guinness world record for bunting – made of Fairtrade cotton – to highlight the injustices faced by cotton farmers in the developing world!

The Fairtrade Foundation is looking for volunteers with skills in using a sewing machine and/or seamstress skills from now till 12 May to sew bunting onto a tape. This will be used to help raise awareness of the problems faced by cotton farmers in areas like West Africa, who rely on being paid a fair price for their cotton to secure their livelihoods.

A minumum of four hours of commitment is required and they will be working through weekends to beat the record! All would be welcome to Battersea Park on 14 May to see the bunting displayed around the park.

Come along and be a key part of the Fairtrade Movement, working with others to highlight trade injustices faced by cotton farmers. Contact, Sarah Jewell at or 020 7440 7681 if you are interested.
