Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 28th February - 13th March. What are you and your church community doing for this important period? CTBI is indulging in some delicious brand-name but recently Fairtrade chocolate!
A relatively new Fairtrade Product on the market is 'The Real Easter Egg' made by the meaningful chocolate company which benefits Traidcraft Exchange and another charity and actually explains the meaning of Easter on the box.

Apparently you can/ will be able to get them from some Morrisons, Co-op Waitrose and Booths as well as some Cathedrals.
If you are having any difficulties with Churches Together Connect please contact us by email.
