Traidcraft - December 2020

Traidcraft12202020 was such a strange year for us all and every one of us was affected in different ways because of the virus and government restrictions.

Traidcraft Exchange tried hard to keep things going but as the year progressed more and more projects had to be abandoned due to the restrictions. Traidcraft found itself using their funds to give people aid just to survive.

We, in Minchinhampton, have regularly sent donations to Traidcraft from the profits raised at our monthly Traidcraft stalls and events. Last year we feared that this would not happen. We haven’t had a Sunday sale since March and our usual Big Brew event and Christmas stall also were not possible. However ....due to you lovely faithful supporters, we have been able to sell most of the stock we had in store and we were able to send a donation to Traidcraft by the end of last year. We managed to send £1000 in total last year !! THANK YOU!!

At the moment and for the foreseeable future, we are unable to run our monthly Traidcraft stall in the porch room ...however, we are taking orders.. Please go online to Traidcraft Shop ...or ask Deborah if you would like a catalogue.

If you would like to order anything, please contact me or Deborah Smith. (01453 883611)
