'Big Brew' Coffee Morning

On Thursday 8th February, a 'Big Brew' Coffee Morning was held to raise money for the Transform Trade charity. Delicious cakes, coffee and tea plus plenty of chat was enjoyed in the process. £193 was raised during the morning.

Including money raised through 'After Church' coffee donations, Merrow has donated £230 to Transform Trade.

Transform Trade is an organisation whose mission is to campaign in the UK and also Europe to make trade more people centered – a different way of thinking about trade and business. The charity believes in fair trade – and as an organisation their roots are in the alternative and fair trade movement. It is a member of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and were founders of the Fairtrade Foundation in the UK. However, they also want to look beyond fair trade at the structures and systems which regulate all trade. People centred trade is an aspiration not a certification. They believe there is a difference between businesses which attempt to practice justice in all they do, and profit driven multinationals which licence only a few products with the Fairtrade Mark.
