16 Mar Betty’s birthday and Fair-trade fortnight
Last week before we closed our doors to visitors we celebrated Betty’s birthday. Karl came in to entertain and Betty greatly enjoyed the celebration.
We also had a special chat club in honour of fair-trade fortnight. We discussed cocoa beans, how and where they are produced and grown and the sad reality that most cocoa growers live in poverty – so buy fair-trade! We watched a video and did some chocolate tasting (yum!). Chilu also showed us how to wear a headscarf in the African style and some people had a go on the drum.
