London Diocese celebrates becoming a Fairtrade Diocese

9th - 11th March 2012

 



With a lot of different people pedalling
the specially adapted bikes to power
the smoothie maker, there were drinks
all round for anyone outside St Paul's
on Friday 9th March!

 
 
 



On Sunday 11th March there was a big
celebration service at St Paul's cathedral.
Energetic drummers and dancers welcomed
the guests, and during the service a steel band
and children's choir played their part.



We were delighted to welcome some peanut producers from Malawi, and Adjoa Andoh, actress and a Patron
of the Fairtrade Foundation interviewed Rosemary Kadzitche. She told us of some of the benefits she
has felt from selling her nuts through a Fairtrade system

The Bishop of London renewed a pledge on behalf of
the Diocese to grow its commitment to Fairtrade, and to deepen its understanding of Trade Justice
