TRAIDCRAFT - Making a Difference

Here at St Mary's we support Traidcraft which runs projects with poor and marginalised producers by helping them to grow and sell their produce. Many workers' lives are transformed through the work of Traidcraft which reduces poverty by raising farm incomes and generating employment. Once a month the Traidcraft stall is in the Church Hall, at coffee time after the 9.45am service, with a wide range of products. 


This month we look towards Easter and with it brings the gift of Easter Eggs.  Easter Eggs are a symbol of hope and new life and for many the sale of our Traidcraft Easter Eggs is life-changing.

Our best seller, the Real Easter Egg contains 35% cocoa, most of which is sourced from co-operatives in the Ivory Coast.  It also contains a 24 page Easter story-activity book that is illustrated with beautiful drawings and some fun activities and this year, it includes a competition to win a £200 book voucher. 

In addition to the milk and dark chocolate Real Easter Egg, we have a huge range of Divine Chocolate eggs, including a Luxury Dark Chocolate Egg; a Luxury Milk Chocolate Egg both of which have mini eggs inside; a Pink Himalayan Salt Dark Chocolate Easter Egg; Tangy Orange Milk Egg; a Dark Chocolate Raspberry Egg and a Divine Milk Chocolate Easter Egg.  A newcomer for this year is the Divine Milk Chocolate Hot Cross Bun Easter Egg with Mini Eggs.

To avoid disappointment, please place your orders with me for Easter Eggs as early as possible this month and do keep an eye out for our raffle for a Divine Luxury Easter Egg, which will be drawn during coffee on Easter Sunday. 

Thank you for your continued support of Traidcraft.
