27 February -12 March is Fair Trade Fortnight. There will be stalls after Mass on Sunday 26 February and Sunday 12 March, with an opportunity to order Easter eggs, as well as the usual goodies. Also, we have received a certificate of thanks from the One World Shop for the £1,712.37 worth of goods we sold in 2016 – so nice to know that we have been a worthwhile support to them and their work.
Thank you to everyone who supported the recent Fair Trade stalls. Stalls were held at St Andrew’s (twice), Peter’s school and the Milligan home. We have returned £1,343.17 to the One World Shop. They allow us to keep 5%. Together, that 5%, donations and the money raised by Geraldine’s tablet sale, have enabled us to send £250 to Fr David Cullen in Zambia.
Thank you to all who purchased items from the Fair Trade stall after Mass last Sunday. Details of proceeds will be published next week. Although there won’t be a Fair Trade stall today, watch for next week when there will be lots of Christmas items on sale (ideal for Christmas gifts!). If anyone has any special requests, please call Rosemary Milligan on 337 1385.
