Beat the Drum for Fairtrade

On 22 October 2015 Lenzie Academy will once again play host to a Lenzie Fair Trade event.  Beat the Drum for Fair Trade is an evening of African entertainment and food to remind us all exactly why we must continue to support farmers and producers in developing countries.  The evening will include a demonstration of African drumming by Gameli Tordzro from Ghana.  Gameli is the Artistic Director of Pan African Arts Scotland and will also encourage any aspiring drummers present to participate in an interactive drumming workshop.  There will be some short presentations from school pupils who have chosen to become involved in Fair Trade projects based in Africa, and the opportunity to taste snacks – both sweet and savoury – made with Fair Trade products from various African countries.  African dancers will also be there to show off their skills, but be warned – participation is mandatory!  As ever, there will be the opportunity to browse and buy from Fair Trade food and related gift stalls.  Our brand new breathable bamboo socks are bang on trend for A/W 2015!  The event will be open for stall browsing at 6.45pm on the evening, and will start promptly at 7pm, ending at 8.30pm to allow younger people to come along.  There will be an admission charge of £2 per adult and £1 per school age child to cover catering costs.
