The Monmouthshire Sports Development Team with Chepstow Football Club Coaches and some Fair Trade volunteers. The day was spent with year five pupils from Chepstow Primary Schools who learnt about well-being and life skills including sport. They used Fairtrade footballs for their activities and we were able to talk to them about Fairtrade and why Fairtrade balls are needed.
