Church Traidcraft Stall

A BIG THANK-YOU!

Elizabeth White, Finance Supervisor at the Church of Scotland , would like to thank our congregation on behalf of the World Mission Council, for the £215.00 raised from our Traidcraft table. Our gift is very much needed and appreciated and will be direct benefit to their overseas work. 

We have asked for it to be directed towards building a house. We have therefore been informed this donation will fund building half a house in Nepal, so hopefully we can raise another similar amount...or MORE...very soon so the other half of the house can be built!

I have attached the latest brochure from Traidcraft which explains how they go beyond Fairtrade - in fact they co-Founded Fairtrade in 1992. Please read at your leisure.

So next time we have our Traidcraft table at the back of Lyle Kirk, please don't compare our prices against the big supermarkets - remember what you pay for Traidcraft goods will not only buy great quality goods, and support communities less fortunate than ours, but your money will also go to fund the building of the other half of that house in Nepal.

We look forward to seeing You....

Grateful thanks from the Traidcraft Team, Mona, Mollie, Dorly and Anna

Traidcraft Stall What's new?
Want to try the food NASA puts on board their spacecraft for  astronauts? Well, we have it on the stall: coloured white, red or  
black i.e. the smooth one, the nutty one or the crunchy one. We also have almonds from Palestine; tasty toffees and some rather nice  Chateau Vert truffles.

Now for some figures. During 2014 £1117 worth of fair trade goods was bought through the church. The profit of £112 (10%) was boosted by £111 from "keep the change box", which was certainly helped by a  certain Swiss lady's marmalade!, to give a total of £222.   Thanks to you all for supporting this worthy cause.

Grateful thanks from the Traidcraft Team, Mona, Mollie, Dorly and Anna
