Wakefield Town Hall Reception

James and Anane were a good double act this evening at a well attended reception in Wakefield town hall.

James spoke very plainly about what Fairtrade has done for him, his family and his community; Anane focused on the dividends of owning a UK chocolate company, telling us all with a delighted grin that “we farmers own a chocolate company in the UK”, laughing as he invited the audience to enjoy this too.

We also heard a good rounding up speech from the marvellously named Bishop of Pontefract.
