FINANCE NEWS: Banana banking

Comedian Harry Hill was the first person to open a new type of bank account, which has been developed by the Fairtrade Foundation and Triodos bank. All money deposited in the Fairtrade Saver Account will go to support fair trade enterprises such as Cafedirect and Equal Exchange in Scotland. Triodos will also donate 25p out of every £100 deposited to the Fairtrade Foundation. The foundation's director Harriet Lamb said: "More and more people are deeply concerned about a global system that marginalises producers in developing countries. Of course people can buy fair trade foods, but this new account is another simple way they can support fair trade and be part of creating change."
