Immanuel and St Andrew has a stall selling fairly traded goods at the church.

What is Fair Trade all about?

The goods we are selling are mainly from Traidcraft. Traidcraft was set up in 1979 as a Christian response to poverty. It helps small producers in the developing world to engage in international trade. Traidcraft works with people of all faiths and none to create opportunities for the poor to harness the benefits of trade, offering them hope for a better future.

Fair prices are paid for the goods, enabling producers from poor and marginalised communities to earn a living wage. Traidcraft develops long-term supportive relationships with the suppliers, helping them to use their skills to build sustainable businesses, and improving the conditions in which they live and work.

What are we selling?

The stall stocks a range of food, including tea, coffee, biscuits, jam, marmalade and chocolate, as well as cards, paper goods and gifts. You can also look through the full Traidcraft catalogue and we will order any item for you.

Most Traidcraft products are obtained on a fair trade basis from overseas suppliers. Some food products contain ingredients bought in the UK and Europe where a fair trade alternative is not yet available. Traidcraft also supply some UK-sourced products, mainly paper-based, such as Christmas cards, because a mix of products is needed at different prices to compete in the market place. Traidcraft are committed to increasing the percentage of goods sourced from overseas. Meanwhile, revenue from sales of the UK-sourced products is ploughed back into the work of fighting poverty through trade.


Make a difference - fight poverty through trade!

The stall normally opens after the morning service on the second Sunday of each month. Watch the What's on page (and our weekly news and notice sheet 'Open Door', available at the church or downloadable from that page) for further information. At other times Carolle can usually take special orders.

FAIRTRADE Mark (fairtradelogo.jpg)


Look out for this on goods in shops and supermarkets. It is awarded by the Fairtrade Foundation (www.fairtrade.org.uk), and it indicates the goods are fairly traded.
Many retailers, including Sainsbury's next to the church, stock fairly traded goods bearing the Mark, although the range is sometimes limited.
