Fairtrade Pop-Up Shop June

40 Years of Traidcraft

In 2019, Traidcraft are celebrating 40 years of fighting social, economic and trade injustices through selling a wide variety of fairly traded food and gifts sourced from countries across the globe.

Traidcraft introduced the first fairtrade tea, coffee and sugar into the UK whilst advocating the importance of organic farming, sustainability and transparency to the lives of growers and artisans around the world.

The international development charity arm of Traidcraft, Traidcraft Exchange, was founded in 1986 and have since campaigned tirelessly for changes to laws and international practices that enable better rights for workers both here in the UK and around the world.

In 1992, Traidcraft helped to co-found the Fairtrade Foundation and despite a very challenging period at the end of 2018, Traidcraft continue to trade and make a difference to lives of farmers and craftspeople globally.

Fairtrade Pop-Up Shop

To help join the celebrations, Rachel and Karen W have once again teamed up to fill the church with delicious Fairtrade food and gorgeous fairly traded handicrafts, toys, gifts, homewares and more from around the world at a Fairtrade Pop-Up Shop in the third week of June.

The refill station of Clean & Fair cleaning products (including washing up liquid, laundry liquid and handwash) will be easily accessible – so bring along your empty bottles and help reduce waste by refilling them.

There will be hot drinks available whilst you browse (Fairtrade of course!) and there will likely be some delicious Fairtrade treats to sample along with special offers on each day.

The Lady Chapel will be clear for anyone who wishes to use the opportunity of church being open to have some quiet time.

The Pop-Up shop will run from Monday 17 June to Saturday 22 June, with various times each day. Payment can be taken in cash or on a card.
