Contestants at the Fairtrade quiz
Sell-out Fairtrade quiz at Stirling Campus
A sell-out Fairtrade quiz night proved to be a real success at FVC’s Stirling Campus on Thursday 10 March.
Forming part of the College’s Fairtrade Fortnight (Monday 29 February – Sunday 13 March) celebrations the event attracted 75 eager participants (12 teams) between 6-9pm, for what proved to be a keenly contested quiz (winners pictured below).
Prizes were awarded and raffles were also won on the night and the cost of the table included a Fairtrade buffet and a glass of Fairtrade wine or fruit juice.
Lisa Hachemi, International Support Co-ordinator and also the coordinator of the College’s Fair Trade Committee, said:
“This was a great event and very well attended. We would like to thank everyone who came along on the night for a great quiz and would also like to thank quiz master George Scott and the Hospitality Department’s students and staff for preparing a lovely Fairtrade buffet.
“It was great to raise awareness for such a worthy cause and as Forth Valley College was Scotland’s first to be awarded Fairtrade Status back in March 2011, we are proud to be able to support Fairtrade Fortnight every year and promote Fairtrade throughout the year.”
