St. Patrick’s Holds Fairtrade Stall

St. Patrick’s Church, Birstall, held a Fairtrade stall across the weekend to mark the conclusion of Fairtrade Fortnight.

Selling a variety of Tradecraft Products, the parish makes a small profit which they reinvest into CAFOD, the parish and other Fairtrade products to sell.

The organisers of the stall also put together Fairtrade Hampers to use as raffle prizes at other church events.

Julie Robinson-Joyce, a St. Patrick’s parishioner and one of the organisers, said: “We want to promote Fairtrade and show parishioners that you can make everyday choices that improve people’s lives and put our faith into action.”
