Home > Fairtrade at St John’s and All Saints’

St John’s and All Saints’ supports Fairtrade and has a policy of using Fairtrade or locally produced food products. We just celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight. If you missed it you can still view the events here.

Take a look at the Fairtrade web site for more about Fairtrade: why it’s important, what’s being achieved and how you can help.

We are continuing to run the RICE CHALLENGE : buy two 1kg bags of Fairtrade Kilombero Rice from Malawi (white or brown) for £10 and we will deliver the rice and in addition make a £3 donation to one of the Traidcraft Exchange projects. This is delicious and versatile easy-to-cook rice which has won Great Taste awards.
