The last OWLS event for 2014 was a shopping evening at the Dunedin Trade Aid store. The 10 members in attendance were treated to drinks and nibbles courtesy of OWLS, and fair trade chocolate, tea, and coffee courtesy of Trade Aid.
This event was a great ethically minded opportunity to buy some last minute Christmas presents and decorations and to learn more about the international communities that directly benefit from Trade Aid. The 20 per cent discount kindly on offer by Trade Aid also ensured that nobody left empty handed (as the photos attest)! There is nothing quite like a bargain at this time of year.
There is a huge range of products available in store, ranging from baking goods, children’s toys, clothing, homewares, furniture, and decorations. It all even comes beautifully gift wrapped. I encourage all of you to have a look around the store as you finish off your Christmas shopping. Thank you very much to Trade Aid for hosting another lovely evening and we look forward to having this event again in 2015.
