Congratulations to all the winners! Thank you  to everyone who sent in nominations - it showed just how much amazing work is being done for Fair Trade around the country. The Forum would like to thank everyone who gives time, effort, money, thought and anything else to supporting and furthering the Fair Trade movement in Scotland.

We'd also like to thank Equal Exchange UK for providing the hot chocolate (seriously, it was scrumptious!), Fairtrade Foundation for providing the exhibition and the Edinburgh University Sustainability Dept for helping us put on the event!

Now...this is an annual event so do bear the awards in mind over the next year and nominate when the time comes!
