‘’A world freed from the scandal of poverty, where trade is just and people and communities can flourish’’
These are the words of Traidcraft’s vision statement – and what we at our church are contributing towards by using and selling their products. For more information on Traidcraft go to http://www.traidcraft.co.uk/
TRAIDCRAFT – SPRING NEWS
Last Autumn Traidcraft’s campaign entitled ''Show You Care'' prompted more people to support our stall – which was brilliant! Thank you and keep on coming.
Now we have a 'Let it Grow' campaign, an opportunity to help thousands of smallholder farmers lift themselves out of poverty. Read this example – ''Day after day we have nothing to eat. In winter my child cries in the cold. I have 50 decimal of fallow lands where nothing grows. There was a time when my child used to eat mud in hunger''. This is an extract from Sahera's story and it makes for difficult reading, but Traidcraft knows that Sahera's fallow land would be perfect for growing tea and that is what they are going to help her, and thousands more like her, do.
Thank you for all your support.
We are a fair trade church in a Fairtrade Town and committed to using fairly traded refreshments at all our meetings and events.
Alongside this we have a stall, stocking delicious food, cards, beautifully crafted jewellery and home accessories from Traidcraft.
This provides farmers and suppliers with a decent price and working conditions for the goods that they produce.
You will be able to buy from our stall after services on a Sunday or at the coffee fellowship on Wednesday mornings.
Do come and see the lovely range we have on offer.
Droitwich Spa Fairtrade group first met in June 2005, to ensure continued commitment to its Fairtrade Town status, which was achieved in June 2007 . We are supported by the Town Council and Wychavon District Council . Our small, friendly group, hold committee meetings four times a year, engaging in the towns activities and lobbying shops, cafes, and restaurants to stock products with the Fairtrade mark . We work closely with Transitional towns at events and would welcome new members to join our group . http://www.droitwichspafairtardegroup.co.uk/ .
