Cathedral marks Fairtrade Fortnight...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral will mark Fairtrade Fortnight, 24 February to 9 March, with a number of promotions. The Cathedral Shop will have a special range of Fairtrade gifts for sale including bags, children’s toys and games, chocolate and the Real Easter Egg made with Fairtrade chocolate. The Shop is open from Monday to Saturday 10.00 am to 4.00 pm (5 pm from 1 March) and Sunday 11.30 am to 4.00 pm.


The Cathedral Refectory uses Fairtrade Tea and Coffee and you can also enjoy a glass of Fairtrade wine with your lunch. Cakes made with Fairtrade ingredients will be on sale during Fairtrade Fortnight and they also stock KitKats which are made with Fairtrade chocolate. The Refectory is open from Monday to Saturday 9.30 am. to 3.30 pm (4 pm from 1 April).


‘Fairtrade Fortnight gives us the opportunity to profile this important cause,’ comments Sarah Friswell, the Cathedral’s PR Manager. ‘We hope that through joining our efforts with others, we can encourage people to be more aware of trade justice issues.’


 The Cathedral obtained Fairtrade status a number of years ago, due to its use of Fairtrade tea and coffee in the Refectory and its offices and for its promotion of Fairtrade products and ideals throughout its community. The Cathedral holds a stall selling Fairtrade products once a month and several members of the Cathedral community are part of the team of volunteers at Just Traid, the town’s Fairtrade café and shop, in St John’s Street.
