Fair Trade

Fair Trade products including biscuits, cereals, coffees, teas, sugar and chocolate are available for sale at the back of St Godric's and St Joseph's every week after our weekend Masses. 

Traidcraft Exchange supports, by fostering trade,  people in poorer countries  who are trying to support themselves and their families and communities.


Traidcraft works to transform world trade so that it works for small producers, and campaigns against unfair working conditions and the  exploitation of vulnerable people.


Selling goods in our Fair Trade shops helps to generate the income the organisation needs, so, while it is important to buy “Fair Trade” in the supermarkets, it is also good to buy from Traidcraft directly. 


This month, in time for Fair Trade  Fortnight
St. Joseph’s will host a Big Brew Coffee Morning.


Saturday 22nd  February
After 10am Mass.

There will be a Cake Stall  and a Raffle, for which contributions will be gratefully received.


Also on sale will be tickets for the

Traidcraft Exchange Raffle,  First Prize A Trip to India!
