The Eastbourne Branch are also promoting a Fairtrade poem. They hope it will go up in a few public places including local food stores like Coop. They have a digital download for newspapers which can also be made available to churches for their newsletters – more details will be posted soon.
Every year, the UK celebrates Fairtrade Fortnight which raises awareness about trade justice, where products we buy everyday come from and how we can easily help through our shopping habits. The Fairtrade Fortnight is coordinated nationally by the Fairtrade Foundation with local branches, including Eastbourne, working in their locality. This years, it’s from 22nd February to 7th March.
This year the Foundation released new resources for online ecumenical services.
