FT Christmas Cards 040.JPG
Christmas came early for some Limerick students today when the winners of the Limerick City Fairtrade Christmas Card Competition were announced at City Hall.
Following hundreds of entries from primary and secondary schools throughout Limerick, two students from Milford NS and Laurel Hill Secondary School will have their cards reproduced and sent to a variety of Limerick businesses, shops and cafes that have supported the Fairtrade initiative in Limerick.
In recent years, an annual Christmas Card competition promoting the Fairtrade status has been run by the Limerick Fairtrade City Committee and supported by the Environment section of Limerick City Council. The theme of this year’s competition was, A Fairtrade Christmas.
