Our group does not benefit financially from sales . Any profit made goes directly back to producers over seas.


Before joining Fairtrade we didn't see any benefits, development or profit. The price we used to receive per box wasn't enough to cover our costs – and for 17 years the price didn't change.  Since starting with Fairtrade it's made a mega-revolution in our lives.”

It's a scandalous reality that millions of farmers and workers are being ripped off despite working hard to provide the products we love.  Unfairness in global trade is rooted in centuries of exploitation.
Yet across the globe millions of hard-working producers are unravelling this legacy.  They're fighting for a fair deal, supported by Fairtrade, earning their way out of poverty and transforming their communities.
Together we're stronger, and more people choosing, sharing and shouting about Fairtrade in the UK means more power to producers to break the stranglehold of poverty prices.
There's never been a more important time to stand with producers through Fairtrade – to protect the progress you've achieved and to welcome more producers in to Fairtrade.

Your opportunity starts with the following:

You will be able to browse and buy from the Fairtrade stall after the Women's World Day of Prayer to be held at St. Andrew's Church on March 2nd at 10-30 and 7-30.

The following day, Saturday from 10am a coffee morning will be held at the Parish Centre with another opportunity to buy your Fairtrade goods from the stall.

At the Methodist Church on Saturday March 10th from 10.30 – 12.30 there will be a coffee morning, home-made cakes with Fairtrade ingredients, tasters and give-aways.
We would love to see you at any or all of these events.
