FOREST Green Rovers fans enjoyed Fairtrade drinks, snacks and stalls at the New Lawn on Saturday.

Fans were able to learn about how Fairtrade helps developing countries during the match against Cambridge as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

This year's Fairtrade Fortnight marks the launch of a campaign to transform the banana industry to ensure that farmers and workers get a fair deal.

The event was organised by FGR and the Nailsworth Fairtrade Town Steering Group.

Helen Taylor, FGR ambassador, said: “This was a great way for everyone to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight while having a bit of fun. "FGR sell a wide range of Fairtrade products at matches all year round."
