FC Porto win Allianz U15 Cup

During the “Culture stage in the Allee” event back in June the Fairtrade Town steering group had an information stand with a number of Fairtrade products as well as information leaflets.

They also had a “Fußballtorwand” – a wall with two holes in to that you try to kick a football through.  This was covered with information about how child labour is used to make sports articles.

A fairtrade football was raffled off amongst all those who had a go at getting the ball through the hole, and the winner was 11-year-old Nikolas Alt, who was presented with the football by Dr. Johannes Bickel (left) of the steering group and Mayor Hans-Georg Brum (right).  Also in the photo are Nicole Schüppenhauer and Jens Gessner from the town’s environment, conservation and energy department.
