Enjoy a fair cuppa in Pock

Pocklington Fairtrade and Local produce Action Group (Pocklington FLAG) invites you to a coffee morning on Tuesday 13th February in All Saints’ Church, Pocklington from 10.00 to 11.30am. This will be raising funds for Transform Trade (formerly Traidcraft Exchange).

Global trading practices overwhelmingly put profit over people and the environment. Transform Trade is a campaigning organization which links farmers, workers, collectives and supporters to promote equitable and sustainable trade. In South Asia and East Africa they work with struggling producers to improve their livelihoods, and in this country they campaign for changes to business practices and government policy.

The coffee morning will include a homemade cake stall and a raffle of fairtrade products. Alongside this fundraising there will be a fairtrade stall supplied by the Fairer World shop in York, selling non-perishable foods, crafts and cleaning products. There will also be activities for children and some information about fair trade and our action group.

FLAG is very keen to find some new members. We are a small, friendly group which meets about five times a year to plan various activities aimed at promoting an understanding of the importance of fair trade. We also hold regular fairtrade stalls. Please see our website, pocklingtonflag., and get in touch with Catherine or Judith if you are interested:
