Walk the Fairtrade talk
26 Jun 2012
A new walking route between Garstang – the world’s first Fairtrade town in Lancashire – and the active Fairtrade town of Keswick has been created for walkers wanting to support fair trade
The Fair Trade Way, designed as a six-day walk covering 12–17 miles a day, comes with a guide to accommodation and cafes along the way which stock Fairtrade produce.
Taking in Garstang, Lancaster, Arnside, Kendal, Bowness-on-Windermere, Grasmere and Keswick, the route connects places of national scenic, historic, environmental and cultural importance.
An 80-mile walk along the route, organised in partnership with Oxfam, will take place on the 24–29 August. Walkers will include Bruce Crowther, founder of the Fairtrade Towns movement and Pushpanath Krishnamurthy, an activist who walked from Oxford to Copenhagen for the 2009 Climate Conference.
