On 17 September 2005, Annan URC signed up to the Fairtrade Foundation, making the following declaration:
“We are a Fairtrade church
We have committed to:
- use Fairtrade tea and coffee for all meetings for which we have responsibility
- move forward on using other Fairtrade products (such as sugar, biscuits, fruit)
- promote Fairtrade during Fairtrade Fortnight – and through other activities whenever possible.”
Folk organising church refreshments and events are asked to observe these statements as far as possible within their contributions to church activities. Organisations using church facilities are urged to use Fairtrade products wherever they can. Similarly, individuals are encouraged to join in by using as many Fairtrade products themselves as they can.
