Esther is only visiting us briefly and this is our only chance in Leicester to hear her story. Esther is visiting the Uk as part of National Fairtrade Fortnight running February 27th to 12th March 2017. Fairtrade Fortnight is co-ordinated by The Fairtrade Foundation and is a fun-filled highlight of the year, when thousands of people from all over the country come together to show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries.
