Fairtrade delights at the Cathedral...

Fairtrade delights at the Cathedral


There will be a focus on Fairtraded products at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, during Fairtrade Fortnight, which runs from 24 February to 8 March. Visit Pilgrims’ Kitchen, the Cathedral’s restaurant, and enjoy a cup of fairly traded coffee, with a bar of Fairtrade chocolate. Bananas and wine are also part of the Fairtrade range. Pilgrims’ Kitchen is open Monday to Saturday from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm.


The Cathedral Shop offers a range of fairly traded scarves from Nepal and cute gift boxes from Africa. The Shop is open seven days a week.


On Sunday 1 March the Cathedral welcomes Richard Stainer, the Diocesan World Development Adviser, as the preacher at the 10 am service. His theme will link with the values of Fairtrade Fortnight.


‘The Cathedral is pleased to hold the status of Fairtrade Cathedral in a Fairtrade town,’ comments Sarah Friswell, PR Manager at the Cathedral. ‘Fairtrade raises awareness of the situation for farmers and manufacturers across the world and challenges injustices.’


Fairtrade is a simple way to make a difference to the lives of the people who grow the things we use in the UK. The Fairtrade Foundation uses this annual fortnight of campaigning to raise the profile of its work.


They work with businesses, consumers and campaigners. Their vision is a world in which all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods, fulfill their potential and decide on their future. They connect disadvantaged farmers and workers with consumers, promote fairer trading conditions and empower farmers and workers to combat poverty, strengthen their position and take more control over their lives.
