Congratulations!

 

We have been certified a

St Andrew’s URC, Swindon URC and Wombourne URC have each received their Fairtrade Church status

This has been something that we have been working towards for 2 years and we have ACHIEVED OUR GOAL.

Thank you to everyone who has worked to make this possible

Below are some ways that Fairtrade encourage us to continue our work and also to keep challenging ourselves to improve.

Links to other organisations

The Fairtrade Foundation Churches scheme is supported by 12 organisations committed to the principles of the Fairtrade Foundation.

These organisations promote Fairtrade Fortnight every year through their own campaigns, events and materials to help their supporters and churches support Fairtrade.

Having these organisations supporting the Fairtrade Churches scheme makes a powerful statement that the leading Christian organisations and NGOs in the UK support Fairtrade as a key solution to making trade fairer for developing countries.”
