Fairtrade Business Awards:┬áCongratulations to Ujima Radio for achieving the Bronze award for ‘Best Fairtrade Office’ in the first ever Fairtrade Business Awards 2012.

Businesses and winners gathered at the Leigh Court Business center in Bristol on Friday 9th March to receive their awards. Ujima’s Business Development director Kevin Philemon who accepted the award on behalf of the company said “to receive an award in a non broadcast area came as an unexpected surprise. We have over the last 3 years been a huge Fairtrade supporter and have organised many events in collaboration with The Bristol Fairtrade Network, so we are delighted that our work is appreciated”.

The awards were organised by Bristol Fairtrade Network in association with Business West, Destination Bristol and Bristol City Council. In attendance were Bristol City Council leader, Cllr Barbara Janke, The lord Mayor Councillor Geoff Gollop and presenting the awards was BBC’s George Alagiah.
