Traidcraft fights poverty through trade, helping people in developing countries to transform their lives. Established in 1979 as a Christian response to poverty, Traidcraft is the UK's leading fair trade organisation. It runs development programmes in some of the poorest countries in the world, and campaigns in the UK and internationally to bring about trade justice.
At CCB we have committed ourselves to being a “fair trade church” so at all our functions we seek to maximize the use of fair trade items such as coffee, tea, and biscuits.
A range of Traidcraft products is always available at the King’s Christian Bookshop and, as part of “Churches Together” in Kings Langley, produce is sold at All Saints and the Methodist Church once a month. In addition, for a number of years there has been a “Traidcraft day” held in November when Christmas cards and gifts are purchased and these have been highly successful, with sales in excess of £1500. The profit from all these sales is donated to Christian Aid, recognising the work we do together to help alleviate poverty.
