MAKE IT FAIRTRADE

We are now a registered and recognised Fairtrade Church 

 

 

   

Twenty one years ago saw the first ever “Fair Trade Fortnight”.  Public understanding of what the “Fair Trade” brand means and the range and availability of products has increased massively in that time.  Whilst Britain has one of the best records in Europe for promoting and buying Fair Trade goods there is still a lot more we can all do.  By switching one of the items we regularly buy to a Fair Trade product makes a real difference to the lives, families and communities of the producers.  To buy something here in Castleford that changes the lives of the poorest people thousands of miles away in Africa or Latin America is surely worth doing. The simple act of putting Fair Trade products in our shopping basket every week is an active expression of our faith and an example of how we as Christians can reach out and help others in need.
