“The coronavirus crisis is still evolving, and we don’t yet know how long it will continue, or what the overall impact will be. But we do know that our work has never been more critical than today. Our decisive actions and contributions now, surely will make the difference in the lives of producers and their families, preserve economic activity, and strengthen our ties to one another, and between producers and shoppers. Please stay safe and healthy. Wash your hands. Keep apart, but stay united.” #FairtradeTogether


We can be part of making the difference by continuing to buy fairly traded products whenever we can. The church still has stocks of its regular products such as ground coffee (Machu Pichu and Kilimanjaro), loose leaf tea and teabags, hot chocolate, cocoa, rice and some sugar. If you let me (on 71725) or Lois (on 71386) know what you’d like we can organise getting it to you.

You can also by food, craft and household items directly from Traidcraft online shop at https://www.traidcraftshop.co.uk/ or of course from our local coop.

Speak out for those who cannot speak

Defend the rights of the poor

We will


Speak out on behalf of the silenced and voiceless

We will defend the rights of the poor.

We will speak out,

We will speak out.
