Fairtrade Update

The Fairtrade group at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to thank you for your generous purchases from our monthly stall. Since April we have bought hundreds of pounds of fairly-traded goods provided by Gavin’s Mill in Milngavie. Your kind additional donations of money, amounting to £40, have also allowed us to buy four gifts from Gavin’s Mill’s catalogue:

  • A concrete ring used in well-building to help farmers in Malawi
  • Life-saving medicines for up to 5 people in Burkina Faso
  • A clean accessible water supply for one person in Burkina Faso
  • 200 metal water ladles for Water Harvest in North-West India

We have recently received certificates from Gavin’s Mill, attached to the poster in the Church foyer, thanking you all for your kind generosity. Your donations have helped some of the poorest communities in the world at Christmas – Faith in Action.
