Fairtrade at St Hugh of Lincoln

4Fairtrade Fortnight

Monday 26th February to Sunday 11th March.

What is Fairtrade? Small-scale farmers and producers in the developing world often bear the costs and risks of trade, while global companies make the profits. Fairtrade products such as tea, cocoa, bananas and thousands of other top quality goods have been bought by companies for sustainable prices. Fairtrade ensures the world’s poorest growers and producers are able to earn a decent living and earn a premium they can put back into their communities. This is an opportunity for us to show your support to the farmers and workers responsible for growing our food.

More than 1.65 million farmers and workers in 74 countries now get a better deal from Fairtrade.

Over 500 Catholic parishes across England and Wales are certified Fairtrade.

There is a display in the church during this period. Please take the time to have a look at the information.
