I’ve been a member of the Midcounties Co-operative since I joined as a Co-op Energy customer four years ago, and I feel very committed to the society’s values. My partner works as a consultant, helping small businesses to set up co-operatives, and we try to be a co-operative household in any way that we can. This is why we recognise the importance of supporting the Fairtrade Foundation.
I’ve been buying Fairtrade for more than 20 years now and every Christmas I give friends and family Fairtrade presents like wine, coffee and chocolate. When I saw the competition in the Summer Members’ Magazine offering the opportunity to win the ‘Ethical Adventure of a Lifetime’, I thought it sounded like a fantastic experience and didn’t hesitate to enter.
