The breakfast to mark Fairtrade Fortnight has had to be rescheduled so will not take place on March 8th but please watch this space. This year it is twenty years since the Fairtrade mark was launched so the impact of Fairtrade is being celebrated. However there is a way to go: although 78% of the UK public recognise the Fairtrade mark only 1.2% of cocoa and less than 10% of tea is traded globally on Fairtrade terms. Please take action. Buy only Fairtrade goods for consumption at parish events and try to buy for yourself, every week, at least one thing which is fairly traded. As always, thank you for prayerful and practical support.
