It’s fair play as foot­ballers tackle in­jus­tice

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

BOYS from a foot­ball team en­joyed a kick about with a con­science as part of Ash­ford’s Fair­trade Fort­night. Young­sters from Park Farm Un­der­13s tried Fair­trade foot­balls at a train­ing ses­sion on Fri­day. Af­ter get­ting hot and sweaty on the pitch, they cooled down with Fair­trade ice cream. Coach Joe Cle­ment said: “The foot­balls were very good and we are look­ing at get­ting them for the whole club. “The kids were all told about the child labour which goes into mak­ing foot­balls and why Fair­trade is so im­por­tant. “The ice cream was also very pop­u­lar.”
