BURY ACHIEVES AND EXCEEEDS THE RICE CHALLENGE!!

We are delighted to announce that we sold all our rice, over the weekend, not the Challenge 90Kg but an amazing total of 140 kilograms, which will raise 350.00 towards high-school education in Malawi; We also received donations, which will be sent on, gift-aided, to swell the coffers even more. We received so much support, from all sorts of quarters, family, friends, our own church-members, members of other churches, and the Fair Trade Steering Committee in Bury. It was truly heartening to see the bags of rice disappear so quickly and to know that such a worthwhile cause would benefit. We set out to sell 90 kilograms but easily surpassed our target.

Fair Trade Status

Bury Unitarian Church has been awarded Fair Trade Status by the Fairtrade Foundation. This means that we have undertaken to use only fairly traded ingredients where ever possible at all Church events. This includes all tea, coffee, sugar etc.

Please join us in supporting this worthwhile venture.

We also support Trade Justice by operating a stall for fairly-traded goods; on the first and third Sunday morning in the month, after the service, from 12.15 pm to 12.45pm the stall is open for business. Anne Mills, who has organised the stall since November , 2003, has been delighted with the response from the congregation; an average of 2,500 worth of Fairly-traded items have been sold from the stall each year. Trade at the church is good, and increases all the time. The most popular items on sale are:

Brazil Nut and Fairbreak biscuits
Genoa Cake 
Chocolate Bars of all kinds 
Marmalade
Kitchen Towels
Tea and Coffee
Sugar

..............................and many, many  more!

Feel free to visit the stall to see what is on offer.
