It has been revealed at today’s Sunday service – held on the final day of Fairtrade Fortnight 2023 – that Bradford Cathedral has been once again confirmed as a ‘Fairtrade Church’, which is valid for the next two years, having held the status since at least 2007.
Mike de Villiers of the Cathedral’s EcoGroup says:
“The Fairtrade Foundation has recognised Bradford Cathedral as a Fairtrade church, which recognises us for the Fairtrade products that we offer and our promotion of Fairtrade.”
The Revd Ned Lunn, Canon for Intercultural Mission and the Arts, says:
“We’re delighted that once again we have been awarded Fairtrade Church status.
“This recognises the sustained passion and commitment Bradford Cathedral has shown over the years to seeking to live equitably with brothers and sisters across the globe as an expression of God’s justice and love for all people.”
