MORE than £400 was raised at a coffee morning held during Fairtrade Fortnight.
The cash collected at the event – at Droitwich Methodist Church last Saturday – will now be matched pound for pound by the Government under the Aid Match scheme.
As well as the refreshments, a Traidcraft stall made £300 and children were kept busy with a variety of activities, including biscuit decorating and making pasta jewellery.
Droitwich Mayor, Coun Bob Brookes, was among those who attended the coffee morning – with his wife Veronica.
Other events during Fairtrade Fortnight included one at the Women’s World Day of Prayer and a stall at the community market.
