Fairtrade campaigners spread their message at Uppingham Social Sunday

Campaigners from the Rutland Fairtrade Forum hosted a promotional stall at the latest Uppingham Social Sunday.

Visitors were able to test out a water pump to find out what it's like to carry two gallons of water - a daily chore for children in other parts of the world.

Fairtrade products were on sale and information was available to learn about the importance of offering a fair price for their products.
