Why get involved.
It is good for you to exercise your creative and oganisational
skills. And potential employers recognise that involvement in a voluntary group shows that you have the skills
they need as an employee. Working as a volunteer for Fairtrade Horsham could give you the opportunity to add that
something extra on your cv which makes it stand out from the others.
The Fairtrade Horsham committee want you to
succeed, and will do everything they can to help you to be successful.
Help on a Stall
Horsham Fairtrade runs stalls from time to time. The organiser creates a rota of
pairs of volunteers to distribute information and talk to people. The stall is set up at the start and tidied away
afterwards by additional volunteers.
Could you help on a stall for an hour or two with a more experienced
volunteer? Perhaps you prefer to help carry the the stall and its materials from a nearby vehicle, and put up posters?
Would you like to organise an event with support from the group?
Help with Campaigns
In order to increase the use of Fairtrade in organisations such as Businesses, or Schools, Fairtrade
Horsham runs campaigns. Each campaign needs a team made up of a leader and a couple of assistants.
Fairtrade Horsham has a small steering committee which
meets about 6 times a year to decide what can be done to promote Fairtrade in the Horsham area. The number of Events
and Campaigns is limited by the energy of this small group and a few other volunteers. Much more could be
done to benefit the people of developing countries if more of us would donate a little time to this important issue.
instance, could you assist by writing the minutes of the meetings, or maintaining the email list, or writing a Press
Release or two, perhaps help organise another Salsa evening, or a Party, or the Businesses Campaign, or helping someone else
to do these things?
Perhaps you live somewhere like Crawley and want to start your own Fairtrade town group,
but just need a little help to get organised?

We were incredibly lucky in Chichester
as the rain had cleared by our start time of 1pm and the afternoon was an almost perfect Spring day. We had 30 riders and
managed to persuade the Chairman of Chichester District Council to see us off and the Mayor to welcome us back.
Burgess Hill. Six intrepid Sussex Nomads braved atrocious weather, rain and sleet, on Sunday 4th March 2012 to
cycle from Burgess Hill to Horsham for a well deserved Fairtrade cup of tea and cake at Esquires Coffee house while they discussed
going the long way back!
Quest Adventure Bike Shop from Worthing helped with the organisation and preparation
of the bikes on the 3rd March 2012 Fairtrade Cycle ride. The ride went very well considering the weather with 15 riders who went from Cornerstone Methodist
Church Fairtrade Cafe to Shoreham and back. The Worthing Herald covered the event.
Pulborough had a great walk and managed to be in
the RSPB having bacon butties
and Fairtrade tea and coffee when the rain was on. Twenty two
took part and did about 150000 steps.
