Our letter writing excitement continues!
James received not one, but TWO replies to a letter he wrote! Back when we did our class assembly, we provided you all with Fair Trade drinks that were bought from local shops, alongside our homemade shortbread. In doing this, we were taking part in the Orkney Islands Council 'Local and Fair Challenge'. James wrote to them to tell them what we did and he has received letters of thanks from Gillian Morrison, the Executive Director of Corporate Services and Gill Smee, the Chairperson of the Orkney Fair Trade Group. They told us about the things other people did too and how Orkney is now recognised as a Fair Trade Zone.
If you want to know more about Fair Trade, you can look here:
Remember that shopping locally benefits the whole of Orkney and you can even win extra treats with the 'Lucky Locals' draw!
Greig also got a reply! He chose to write to Sir Chris Hoy, the UK's most successful Olympian. He received a signed photo of him, along with lots of information about him.
