A LIFE changing £500 has been given to a South American women’s co-op from Linlithgow Fairtrade partners.

Linlithgow Fairtrade Partnership handed over a £250 cheque, matched by Fair Tradewinds, to Esperanza on the outskirts of the city of Trujillo, to help them expand their card making business.

Siriol Hayler of Fair Tradewinds said: “This financial help will mean the world to our producer partners in Peru.”
