Harry Hill has joined on board for a special Fairtrade march as part of Fairtrade Fortnight, which launches today.
Alongside Harry, who has his own Fairtrade nuts Harry’s Nuts with Liberation, will be Jonathan Ross, Tulisa, Tinchy Strider, Amanda Holden, Louis Smith, Richard Hammond, Levi Roots, Dermot O’Leary, Andi Peters, Eddie Izzard and a raft of other big names, all of which will be joining thousands to march on Parliament to campaign for a fair deal for small farmers.
However, uniquely, the march will see Harry and the other stars joining the march in the form of three inch personalised paper people versions of themselves from Foldable.me. The Fairtrade Foundation wants to get as many people involved as possible with their own paper person.
You can visit fairtrade.org.uk/jointhemarch to sign the petition and create your own paper person for the march on 4th March.
Cheryl McGechie, Director of Public Engagement, Fairtrade Foundation, said:
This Fortnight we wanted to do something a bit different. Our march on Parliament is an engaging way for everyone to go further to help smallholder farmers combat unfair trade practices.
Harry has also commented:
I’ve visited Fairtrade smallholder peanut farmers in Malawi so have seen for myself how important it is that they get a fair deal when they trade. My little friend here agrees and will be joining the march to demand the government takes more action to improve conditions for farmers around the world.
