Webteam: March 2013
At the recent circuit meeting Michael Sanderson reported on behalf of the CAST Team that the majority of circuit churches have now achieved Fairtrade status. That means that we now have enough for us to apply to become a Fairtrade Circuit. Since the circuit committed itself to aim to become a Fairtrade Circuit two years ago we have made tremendous progress.
There is a Fairtrade stall now at almost all circuit events, and for the last two years the circuit has promoted free Fairtrade coffee mornings in all of its churches, and has continued to promote the use of Fairtrade goods throughout the life of the circuit.
Michael expressed his thanks to the churches and individuals involved in achieving this progress. He urged those churches which have not yet made the commitment to consider whether now is the time to join in this important work.
The circuit meeting was held just before the 2013 Fairtrade Fortnight when once again churches were being encourage to hold special free Fairtrade coffee mornings to promote Fairtrade to congregations and local communities. It was also reported that Emmanuel church was running the 90kg Malawi rice challenge, and that 1kg bags of rice would be available at circuit events.
