Fairtrade

Great Doddington, Wilby and Ecton churches committed to being a fairtrade benefice a good number of years ago now.
What is fairtrade:
With fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their futures and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
It’s about supporting the development of thriving farming and worker communities that have more control over their futures and protecting the environment in which they live and work.
And it’s your opportunity to connect with the people who grow the produce that we all depend on.
The fairtrade symbol looks like this

See the source image

Whenever you see this symbol the food or goods have been made fairly for fairtrade.
Each church has one Sunday in the month where they can support fairtrade and buy goods and these are on:
Great Doddington: second Sunday of the month at 11.15
Ecton: third Sunday of the month at 10.00
Wilby: fourth Sunday of the month at 9.00
Please support this as we do get 10% of all sales sold. If you wish to buy anything from the catalogue you or want to know more you can contact me on nicolaclough.nc@gmail.com.
