TRAIDCRAFT BIG BREW COFFEE MORNING

Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the Big Brew Coffee Morning, held in the Parish Centre on February 24th.  Proceeds from this event, added to the profit from regular stalls over the past 12 months, allowed me to send a cheque for £720 to Traidcraft’s Hidden Entrepreneurs Appeal.  As every pound donated will be doubled by the UK Government this year, this means that Traidcraft will be able to help twice as many people in developing countries to learn the skills they need to build businesses and turn their potential into profit, using that to feed their families, educate their children, access healthcare and leave poverty behind for good.

Traidcraft Exchange works in partnership with Traidcraft, the fair trade business, to promote justice and fairness in trade - on behalf of people in some of the world's poorest countries. Through development programmes in South Asia and East Africa, and policy, lobbying and campaigning in the UK, they have made a difference to millions of people. Traidcraft depends on our support to continue their vital work, so, once again, thank you for all your contributions.

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Jennifer Morrison on the day before the Big Brew.  Over the past few years the organisation of all the Sunday stalls has been greatly facilitated through having her as such a reliable and super-efficient assistant.  She was a very caring and considerate person whose positive approach to life, which saw her tackling everything with determination, considerable energy and enthusiasm, was truly remarkable. She was an inspiration to us all and will be sorely missed.
