No stall in church at present
What can I do to help Traidcraft?
You might have seen in the news recently that Traidcraft is facing difficult times. Since 1979, Traidcraft has been pioneering fair trade in the UK. Today, the business is in a period of consultation, planning a way it can work sustainably in the future. But it needs your help.
Traidcraft currently works with over 100 producers from 30 countries. This autumn season is Traidcraft’s most impactful yet, and it needs to be a success.
What can I do to help?
Seek out the Traidcraft stall in your church
Do your Christmas shopping at http://www.traidcraftshop.co.uk , and encourage friends and family to do the same
Hold a Traidcraft party at home or at church. Share catalogues and collect their orders

In February 2016 Auchtergaven and Moneydie Parish Church was successful in gaining Fairtrade church status. This means that:
The church uses Fairtrade tea and coffee after services and for all meetings for which the Church has responsibility.
The church will move forward on using other Fairtrade products such as sugar, washing up liquid, biscuits, fruit, flowers etc.
The church will promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight and during the year whenever possible.
Congratulations to Maggie, Jennie, Morven and Olivia who have been working on this for the past two years.
