On Saturday, February 29 from 10.15am until 12.15pm, in Beccles Library, the Beccles Fairtrade Town Steering group will host a pop-up café for the fourth year running.

This year the theme is once again chocolate, and the event will be an opportunity to taste delicious products while raising awareness of cocoa farmers who are often exploited and badly paid.

The pop-up café "welcomes everyone, and refreshments will be available for a donation" according to its organisers.

There will be activities for children including a chocolate trail organised by Hilary Pyburn and a Fairtrade themed Lego club organised by David Brambley-Crawshaw.

Organiser Hilary Pyburn said: "We love organising this pop-up café, it's always really busy and a good opportunity to share the Fairtrade message in a fun and interactive way."

Green councillor Elfrede Brambley-Crawshaw said "This event is always great fun and it's great that the Library are so supportive. It's an opportunity to have a fantastic piece of cake and a good chat with lovely people."

The event will also be an opportunity to sample free chocolate and learn about some of the Fairtrade farms that these products come from.

All proceeds from the café will be spilt between the Fairtrade Foundation and Beccles Library.
