Fair Trade Shop for Weymouth

On Tuesday 10th October 2017 the Fairbridge Trust opened The Bridge Fair Trade Shop at 24 Trinity Road, next to Holy Trinity Church. Fairbridge Trust is a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation) set up by members of Holy Trinity Church with a vision to promote Fair Trade but also to support local and overseas charities working for the relief of poverty. They will continue to run the fair trade stall in church each week.

Canon Andrew blessed the shop before it opened and pictured are some church members and volunteers who will be running the shop.

The inspiration for the shop grew out of the regular church Traidcraft stall and will continue to stock a wide range of Traidcraft cards, gifts and food as well as all manner of fair trade products from a variety of suppliers.

The shop supports the Dorset Murugi Community Projects by selling bags and jewellery from Kenya and the Salisbury Diocesan Medical Link in Sudan and South Sudan; and by selling cards by local artist Keith Whittock.

Buying fair trade goods means farmers, producers and artisans get a fair price for their work, better living conditions, healthier and safer working conditions and the opportunity to provide education for their children. They have a say in how the fair trade premium is spent to help their local community. Fair trade benefits the environment by maximising the use of sustainable and recycled materials. Please support the shop and fair trade as much as you can.

    SALISBURY - THE FIRST ECO DIOCESE

    The Diocese of Salisbury has been declared the first Eco Diocese. In a first for the Church of England, the Diocese of Salisbury has been granted Eco Diocese Status.

    Andy Atkins, CEO of A Rocha UK the Christian based environmental charity which runs the green award scheme said: “Salisbury is the first diocese to be awarded Eco Diocese status and it's our very great pleasure to do so. When we launched Eco Church in 2016 we had high hopes and expectations. To have got this far so quickly is humbling, exciting and such a huge encouragement that so many churches in a diocese are working together to care for God's earth should be an encouragement to us all.”
