I expect you insist on Fair Play at all times!  Did you know that you could play and train with Fairtrade footballs?  – no need for any more exploitation of child labour just so our children can enjoy their footie! Donna, one of GFA’s members, is happy to visit clubs and schools with a Fairtrade football and would love to talk to you about it – Why not invite her along to your club or school to find out more? (Contact her: here.) mmnvHere is a short video about Fairtrade footballs
