Faitrade December

This December I received an email from Dr Sara Calvo, Professor at the Middlesex University to say I had won 3rd place in the International Social Innovation Challenge 2016 organised by the Middlesex University Business School.

Many congratulations and best wishes to the other winners Ms Palma Milicevic and Ms Emma Butler for their social enterprise ideas. I have attached my video submission for The Little Fair Trade Shop below for those who are interested.

Could I also praise everyone who entered the challenge, your ideas were inspirational and I am grateful to everyone for their support.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Engel, Ms Maager and the entire Swiss Business Council team for their wonderful professionalism and support. Many thanks to both Ms Engel and Ms Maager for asking about my asthma and health during the event.

Thank you Annie and Helen for designing and printing my beautiful silk banner and sign. It looked gorgeous.

Six Items Challenge 2019 with Labour Behind The Label
Six Items Challenge 2019 with Labour Behind The Label

So here I am for the eighth consecutive year I'm participating in the Six Items Challenge with Labour Behind The Label.

This year the challenge commences 6th March - 18th April March 2019.

I have decided to participate and support the Six Items Challenge for the eighth year because I started to campaign for garment and factory workers while caring for my mother who had been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

The six items challenge means I choose six items of clothing to wear for six weeks.

Don't worry!

This does not include under garments or exercise gear. You can wear an endless supply of these. :)
