Members of the Windermere & Bowness Fairtrade Group, pictured below, with Paul Liddell (Managing Director) at Lakelovers.  The group would like to thank Lakelovers Self Catering for generously sponsoring the Fairtrade Shopping Bags.


Five hundred jute shopping bags bearing the FairtradeLakelovers sponsor Fairtrade Bags logo and the words "Windermere & Bowness Fairtrade Town" arrived at the end of July and are on sale in many local retail outlets and TIC's.  The bags are produced through CORR, a woman's' non profit making handicraft, marketing and exporting trust in Bangladesh.  Buying the bags, which are on sale for Ł5 can help give social and economic dignity to disadvantaged and neglected people in Bangladesh as well as supporting the environment and creating an awareness of Fairtrade in the town.


The Fairtrade Group would also wish to thank Cumbrian Cottages and the Lake District Nation Park Sustainability Fund for their sponsorship.


These bags have now been sold out.
