FAIRTRADE IN 2017 — OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU AND OTHERS
Our Fairtrade Circuit status conveys responsibilities for each of us as individuals and as worshipping communities within the Circuit.
Responsibilities that give life, purpose, wellbeing and hope to individuals, families and communities. We may never meet these people but this is also applies to many of the things to which we contribute, such a blood donations and Charity appeals.
What FAIRTRADE opportunities will be available to you in 2017?
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2017 27th Feb- 12th March
During this fortnight watch out for events and offers.
The theme this year is 'Put Fairtrade into your break'. Why not share some Fairtrade snacks and drinks with colleagues and visitors. Take some Fairtrade products into work to share during breaks.

VISITING A NATIONAL TRUST PROPERTY?
If you do you will now have the opportunity to drink Fairtrade tea and coffee as well as choose other Fairtrade products from their restaurants/ coffee shops following their commitment to use them.
