Our Parish was awarded Fairtrade status in 2009. We use only Fairtrade products for parish events, including our refreshments after the 10.30 am Mass on Sunday.
We support Fairtrade events and we hold a very successful Christmas Fairtrade sale where there is a wide range of products available including confectionary, toys, spices, sauces, cards, rice, tea, coffee, cakes, jewellery, accessories and many other appealing items.
By doing this we are giving disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries the chance to rise out of poverty. They are paid a fair price which enables them to invest in a stronger future for their communities.
