Fair Trade Fortnight 2021

Fairtrade Fortnight 2021 –   22 Feb to 7th March.

Both St Mary and St Joseph’s and St Mark’s church in the parish of Hemel West have been Fairtrade churches for several years. Last year we celebrated Fairtrade Fortnight with the Boxmoor Scouts at their monthly coffee and bacon butties morning – some of the cubs had worked hard and made cakes with Fairtrade ingredients and crafts to raise money. Sadly we will not be able to do that this year.

Instead the Fairtrade Foundation is inviting us all to take part in an online festival being launched to highlight how the climate crisis is affecting the future of food and those who produce it.  The event is entitled “Choose the World you want” and will feature a series of on line events for all ages.

Please take some time to visit www.fairtrade.org.uk/fortnight and show your support.

Also the Westminster Diocese has recently become a Fairtrade Diocese and they will be receiving their award on 5th March. Please use the link to participate: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fairtrade-diocese-award-diocese-of-westminster-celebration-social-tickets-140785831211
