Live Fair for Lent 2.0
Advance notice! - Save the date and join us on Thursday 17th March at 7p.m. on Zoom. An hour packed full of stories about how Fairtrade makes a positive difference to the producers. Hosted by Matt Oliver, CEO of Traidcraft plc.
We are now in Fairtrade Fortnight, a time when John and I usually give an illustrated talk about our latest Traidcraft “Meet the People Tour” – that obviously won’t be happening this year as we haven’t been anywhere!
We have been able to watch some of the Fairtrade Fortnight presentations from the Fairtrade Foundation in which producers have been talking about ways in which they are supported and how the farmers are adapting to cope with climate change. Their approach to the challenges has been amazing. These events continue for the rest of the fortnight.
Could you mark Fairtrade Fortnight in one (or more) of these ways:-
Come to see what is available from the cupboards if you haven’t looked recently.
Try a product that you don’t usually buy.
Borrow a catalogue to see what goods are available to order.
Help us to raise money for Traidcraft Exchange, working to end injustice in trade and supporting people in vulnerable communities to build resilience against climate change.
Do you have any All Saints photos we might use for our new website?
It would be good to include recent images of various activities, worship, and fellowship reflecting our life here.
We will select photographs according to our Photographs Policy and seek necessary permission to include them.
Please email them to the parish office if you have any.
