Traidcraft is a Christian-based organisation and was a pioneer of the Fair Trade movement. It has played a significant part in raising awareness of the need to treat fairly those who produce the commodities we depend on in our everyday lives. We believe it is the role of the Church to stand alongside the poor. The widespread availability of goods bearing the Fairtrade mark in today's supermarkets is due in no small measure to campaigning organisations like Traidcraft.

TRAIDCRAFT IN CULTS PARISH CHURCH
Many Traidcraft products find their way onto our weekly stall at Cults Parish Church, which is available after the morning service each Sunday.
A team of helpers welcomes customers, selling food stuffs, cards, gifts, and a new range of palm-oil based cleaning products, using carefully sourced palm oil from African small-holder farmers.
Check the stall regularly for new products.
Ask for a catalogue - a new one comes out twice a year.
There are stalls at various special events throughout the year
eg Charity Christmas Card Sale
Christian Aid Coffee Morning
We hold a Christmas Fayre after the service at the beginning of December.
Fairtrade Fortnight in late February - early March each year is a focus for special efforts in promoting trade justice
Cults Church offers starter packs of Traidcraft goods to five other local churches. One of our members,
Ann Robertson at firstname.lastname@example.org is now an official Traidcraft speaker, available to speak to interested groups.
We have recently set up a small display of Fairtrade goods for sale in the Kirk Centre. Don't hesitate to speak to us if you are interested in getting involved in this worthwhile work. Volunteers are always welcome.
