Open House at The Brambles, Pilton on Friday 27th February

traidcraftto support Fairtrade Fortnight (Fairtrade Fortnight: 23rd February – 8th March) Friday 27th February 10.00 am – 8.00 pm at Anthony & Hilary Austin’s, The Brambles, Barrow Lane, Pilton. BA4 4BH The new Spring/Summer catalogue will be available.

Also: Thursday 26th February 11.00 am – 12 noon North Wootton Cafe.

Last Christmas, as a result of Traidcraft sales, I was able to send £100 to Christian Aid to support their appeal to deliver vital health care to mums and babies around the world. In Kenya alone 14,700 babies die in their first day of life. I have also been able to send £50 to Traidcraft’s ‘Fair Necessities Appeal’. Traidcraft are hoping to raise £500,000 to help small-holder farmers around the world grow more, earn more and eat more. I hope to send a further donation at the end of Fairtrade Fortnight. Both appeals have attracted matched funding from the government, so all donations are doubled.

Do drop in for a coffee and bring a friend on 27th February. Phone: 01749 890561 or

e-mail: hilary.austin2@btinternet.com for any enquiries.
