Dubble Whammy: two good causes, one bag of chocolate

| 7th March 2011
Treat yourself to some chocolate and show your support for Red Nose Day with Fairtrade Dubble chocolate coins

This years’ Red Nose Day on Friday 18th March will once again be raising money to help some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the world, whether they’re in Uganda or in the UK.  If you aren’t getting involved directly, show your support by swapping your Dairy Milk for a bag of Divine Dubble chocolate coins, £1.  An easy way to do your bit, Comic Relief will receive 5p from every bag sold. But your contribution doesn’t end there: every member of the 45,000 strong Kuapa Kokoo cocoa farmers co-operative in Ghana will benefit from your purchase as well.

Dubble was founded in 2000 when Divine Chocolate teamed up with Comic Relief to release a fairly traded chocolate bar for the youth market. Comic Relief has continued to support Dubble since its launch 11 years ago and supports Fairtrade products as part of its commitment to creating a world free of poverty.
