Youngsters held a Fairtrade breakfast in support of poverty-stricken farmers.
Children at Gearies Primary School, Waremead Road, Gants Hill, joined pupils around the country by holding a Big Fairtrade Breakfast event and served 193 breakfasts to support farmers around the world.
Ilford North MP Wes Streeting joined the Year 5 pupils for the Fairtrade Fortnight breakfast.
Headteacher Bob Drew said: “Fairtrade to us means many producers and workers are able to do what we take for granted – put enough food on the table for themselves and the people they care about, all year round.
“We have been campaigning for Fairtrade for the last two years and have learnt what difference it makes for world’s most vulnerable communities and the effects of farming on these farmers, their families and the environment”.
