‘A poor man's field may produce an abundant harvest but injustice sweeps it away’  Proverbs 13:23

FAIRTRADE is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world

Here at Oakwood Church we support those aspirations by having a FAIRTRADE stall once a month in the New Room (after Church Parade on the 2nd Sunday of each month) where you can purchase many different items such as chocolate, coffee, tea, rice cakes, jewellery, Geobars and dried fruit. Many other items are available too, such as clothes, bags, scarves and household items. Please borrow a catalogue and have a browse

As well as supporting Traidcraft, 10% of all sales goes to support the work of Oakwood Church

Did you know that over 1.2 million bananas are sold in the UK every year, but only 1 in 3 of these is FAIRTRADE?

FAIRTRADE fortnight  (24 February - 9 March 2014) marks the launch of a special campaign that aims to transform the banana industry to ensure those at the sharp end of the supply chain, the millions of struggling banana farmers and workers, get a fair deal. For more information have a look at the FAIRTRADE Foundation’s website www.fairtrade.org.uk
