Ness Bank Church is a Fairtrade church. During Fairtrade fortnight each year we either have a Fairtrade breakfast or coffee after the service with proceeds going to the farmers.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers.
It supports small scale farmers and workers who are marginalised from trade in a variety of ways.
There are over 1.4 million farmers and workers in 1,140 producer organisations across the Fairtrade system.
It is a global movement with a strong and active presence in the UK, represented by the Fairtrade Foundation.
Fairtrade fortnight will feel a little different this year as we can't meet to share delicious Fairtrade food, but we are all still connected and can still spread the word and shop Fairtrade.
We will still be marking Fairtrade fortnight online though, so grab your Fairtrade coffee and eats and join us on Wednesday 24th February at 7.00pm for a Zoom quiz which Clare Maclean our World Mission Team Leader has put together. Everyone is welcome and questions for all!
Please email the church office to receive the Zoom link.
