The Big Fairtrade Pancake Breakfast
  • Crosspoint, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Part of Fairtrade Fortnight – Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers! 29 February – 13 March.

As Martin Luther King said, “Before you finish eating your breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world”. Despite our dependence on farmers and producers for food and drink, about 795 million people are undernourished globally. This Fairtrade Fortnight is all about a big breakfast!

Plymouth University has been an accredited Fairtrade university since 2009, and for Fairtrade Fortnight 2016 we want to promote supporting Fairtrade businesses and producers across the globe securing a fair price for produce, helping families in poverty gain food security.

Join in our events over Fairtrade Fortnight at the University and contribute towards making a change!

Come and join us for a Fairtrade pancake breakfast, with freshly cooked pancakes, with a choice of Fairtrade toppings from chocolate, banana and lemon and sugar and Fairtrade tea and coffee available. 

First 50 people eat free, thereafter only £1.50 per person. Students and staff welcome. 

We want to try and put on the BIGGEST Fairtrade breakfast over the fortnight, and put Plymouth University on the map for our support of Fairtrade! Come down and bring your colleagues and friends.

We will be fundraising for the Fairtrade Foundation and Brain Tumour Research!

This event is sponsored by UCSP.
