Challenging Yourself for Fairtrade

Whether it’s running a marathon, abseiling down a building or challenging yourself to drink only Fairtrade tea for a year, if you want to go the extra mile for Fairtrade we’re right behind you every step of the way!

Fundraising for Fairtrade means that farmers and workers can get a fairer deal for the food they work so hard to produce. So use your imagination, and be as ambitious as you like (but remember, safety first!). Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Fun runs, hikes, swims and bike rides are great ways keep fit and raise money for your favourite cause
  • Living Fairtrade for a day – see how much of your daily routine you can make Fairtrade!
  • Wearing a banana costume to work, school or uni every day for a week
  • Only eating Fairtrade chocolate for a year (yes really!)
