Traidcraft Online Event & Update

Fair Trade in Brighton and Hove – a message from Louise Mabbs

Dear Fair Trade supporters and friends

I am a voluntary rep with Traidcraft, and been involved with fair trade generally since I was a teenager in the 1970’s. I’m usually based at The Brighthelm Centre on North Road where I did weekly sales before the covid restrictions.  I’m also on the Brighton and Hove Fair Trade Steering Group which promotes and encourages FT throughout the city


Firstly I’d like to invite you to an online presentation with Matt Oliver from Traidcraft on Monday 30th November from 8pm – 9.30pm on zoom

We will be watching a short video about how Traidcraft has developed, the difference that buying Fairtrade makes, how the Global Pandemic has effected producers and Traidcraft as a business. He will also share something of the work of their sister charity Traidcraft Exchange, who campaign government for a fair deal for producers across the world.

It will really help if you can you look at the catalogue before you come to the meeting.

I also have a lot of gifts, clothing and cards from previous years in stock so will be uploading some of them to my blog over the weekend and probably make a short

film for the meeting and explain how you can order both catalogue and stock products from me during the current restrictions


Secondly, B&H FTSG are trying to locate all the suppliers of FT in the city so we can add everyone to our lists on the website. We might also post a location map so people can find out who’s supplying in their area, so I am covering faith groups plus Traidcraft outlets and users.

So please get in contact with me and let me know ASAP

1) If you’d like to attend the virtual meeting so I can send you the link

2) To update me on what your involvement is locally

I look forward to meeting you sometime, if I haven’t met you already by other means!


Many thanks,



PS If you have already ordered this year, thank you very much – still feel free to come to the presentation

Also no pressure if you are not able to come 

Or not able to buy anything at the current time – you are still welcome to listen in
