We are a committed band of volunteers with a small shop within St Andrew’s Church Centre, Kimbolton Road, Bedford.
Our little shop is stocked to the ceiling with beautiful fairtrade food, drinks, crafts, household goods, accessories, jewellery, incense, gifts, cleaning products, and tasty delicious fairtrade treats.
We believe that fairtrade is a fantastic way to work in partnership with farmers and artisans across the world and to pursue and support justice in trading systems.
Fair trade sales started at St Andrew’s in the late 1980s with a stall offering a small range of products. Over the years, through the involvement of many people at different times, this initiative has consistently grown and developed. When St Andrew’s built a new Church Centre the decision was made to provide the current small shop premises where our ever increasing range of goods can be attractively displayed. The shop also allows us to readily store sufficient goods for the stalls we take to outside events and for the sale or return facilities we offer to people so they can run their own sales and events.
