Fairstone: Help a child in Africa!

What if you could choose an attractive paving product for your garden that could also benefit the life of a child in Africa?

Marshalls Fairstone range offers just that. For every metre of this stone sold, £1 will be donated to UNICEF, a charity working to eradicate child labour. This funding will help to carry out research into quarrying in the Indian State of Rajasthan and will help develop interventions to tackle child labour.fairstone

Chris Harrop, Marshall’s Director of Sustainability says, “By choosing Marshalls Fairstone you can be sure everything possible has been done to ensure child labour has not been used in its production. Our customers can feel proud that they have become part of the solution to this appalling issue.”
