‘’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/
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT. FEBRUARY 27th to MARCH 12TH
SATURDAY MARCH 4TH
We are holding a coffee morning in the Wesley Room from 10.30 to 12.30.
There will be delicious cake, made from fairtrade ingredients, to have with your coffee and tea;
also the Traidcraft stall with its new spring range to browse and buy from.
For January and February there is 10% off the 'Clean and Fair' cleaning products. These are excellent products, made with fairtrade coconut oil from South India and Fair palm oil from West Africa, benefitting the small scale farmers and the environment too!
FOCUS ON FAIRTRADE - SPRING
February sees the launch of the Traidcraft Spring Catalogue, so now is your chance to see what is new. Let's hope for some lovely Spring and Summer weather as there are lots of ideas for the garden – decorative herons and ducks, planters made from terracotta and recycled tyres; bird house and feeder; garden tidy and kneeler, tools, compost and twine. If you fancy a makeover for your bedroom there are some beautiful new duvet covers to choose from with intricate block printed patterns....and so much more.
Easter comes in the middle of April this year so you have time to choose some of the cards, eggs and gifts. The Real Easter Egg comes with a booklet telling the Easter story – the only chocolate egg on the market to do so, putting across an important message.
When you look at the new catalogue you may notice a few price changes this time. Here is a message from Traidcraft;
"We're committed to giving you good value. So we aim to source the highest quality products and sell them at a fair price to both you and the producer. With the substantial fall in the value of the pound in recent months, all imported goods have become significantly more expensive. So to keep up our high standards, we've had to increase our prices just a little. But rest assured, we will continue to bring you the best hand crafted, hand grown products at the best possible prices.”
So thank you for continuing to support the farmers and craftsmen – the price rises may affect us, but it affects them even more.
Thank you for buying Traidcraft,
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.
