Ilkley Fairtrade Group, Ilkley Oxfam and Ilkley’s Christchurch are offering samples of Fairtrade goods, and giving away Fairtrade tea bags so people can have their own Fairtrade break. Christchurch will have a Traidcraft stall in the foyer from 10.30am.
The Sanctuary is a cross church project, currently based in shop front premises at 6 Church Street Ilkley – on the main A65 route through Ilkley. (We’re registered as a Fairtrade place of worship and our main focus is on prayer and creating resources to help churches engage with justice issues, and people outside of church engage with Christianity – hence we have a lot of creatives involved!)
We have a large double paned picture window and our artists use this regularly to create and display original works which communicate messages of hope, love and justice.
This Fairtrade Fortnight (and beyond) we’re going to be displaying an original piece of work created by Barbara Macnish, featuring a tea-picker painted from an image supplied by the media team at the Foundation of Mervis Kejinga from Satemwa, Malawi. The painting is a large mixed media piece using collage and painting to depict Mervis on top of a canvas made from tea-bags!
It will be accompanied by a headline asking people who brings them their morning cup of tea, and with some specially produced accompanying posters with more information and additional Fairtrade and tea themed decoration.
