"A fantastic day with wonderful speakers, songs and liturgy!"  "Really inspiring " 

Our thanks to John Bell of the Iona community who led us in reflection about issues of justice in trade and environment, and in world music; to Barbara Crowther of the Fairtrade Foundation, Sophie Tranchell of Divine, Alex Georgiou of Cafedirect who gave us a clearer picture of the impact and importance of Fairtrade; and to Catherine Brogan, performance poet, who shared a poem specially written for Fairtrade.

In June 2010 St Michael's Bedford Park took part in the Bedford Park festival, where they were constantly busy giving samples of Divine Chocolate and Ubuntu cola. There was much enthusiasm to register favourite Fairtrade products in the Fairtrade Little Swap Books and hand it to Customer Service to help the Bedford Park Festival make a difference!
