Rainbow Turtle Backs Rainbow Nation with World Cup promotion

To celebrate the first World Cup to take place in Africa, Renfrewshire residents are being encouraged to join in a special Fairtrade competition.

Rainbow Turtle’s Fairtrade shop in Paisley is promoting African products to celebrate the World Cup being held in South Africa, the Rainbow Nation.

Anyone who buys an item made in Africa from the shop during the group stages of the competition can select a World Cup team and be entered into a free prize draw.

Following the World Cup final a winner will be chosen at random from all the entries, and will receive a £10 gift voucher for Rainbow Turtle.

Continuing with World Cup fever Fairtrade footballs and World Cup African Curry Night packs are also on offer at Rainbow Turtle. Other African products on sale include chocolate, rice, handbags, mugs, tea and coffee.

The competition is being backed by the Renfrewshire Fairtrade Steering Group.

Councillor Brian Lawson, Chair of Renfrewshire Fairtrade Steering Group, said: “The World Cup being in Africa for the first time is the perfect excuse to celebrate the huge range of products that come from there. By buying these Fairtrade goods you are ensuring that the people who make them get a fair deal for their work and you could also be in with a chance of winning a prize.”
