Holy Trinity is a Fairtrade church, which helps make a real difference to the lives of farmers and workers in developing countries.
Fairtrade, defined simply, is when producers are paid a fair price for their work, so they can afford life's essentials - like housing, food, education and healthcare.
The tea and coffee we serve in church is fairly traded and since 1998 we have had a Traidcraft stall selling Fairtrade products. Traidcraft’s mission is to fight poverty through trade, to help people in developing countries transform their lives. Their vision is for a world freed from poverty, where trade is just, and people and communities can flourish.
Very sadly Traidcraft plc is going into administration. The company has been struggling financially for some time and in spite of a re launch in 2019, it has now been forced to appoint administrators. Thank you to those people who have the supported the Traidcraft stall in church over the past twenty years. It has helped many people in developing countries to transform their lives.
