A PROMISING group of women from Doncaster are hoping to make their mark in the business world by selling Fairtrade products. Six women, all from the Platform 51 Doncaster Women’s Centre sold Fairtrade confectionery at the Corn Exchange as part of the ‘Not Just You’ scheme organised by the Lorna Young Foundation.
The partnership with the UK registered charity promotes awareness of Fairtrade and ethical trading and gives people in deprived areas the opportunity to establish themselves in business.
Jo Ward, programme co-ordinator at the Lorna Young Foundation, said: “We have just started and it is pretty exciting. This is going to be their first stab at trading.”
