Bradford Cathedral held its seventh annual Cathedral Fairtrade Breakfast ahead of the Mothering Sunday service on March 10th 2024.

At the breakfast there was porridge served with locally produced honey as well as Fairtrade hot drinks, and jam and marmalade to go with toast, alongside cereals and freshly made breakfast muffins.

Elaine de Villiers, who helped organise the breakfast, said:
“Over 30 adults and children enjoyed a meal of Fairtrade and local items and took part in a quiz matching Fairtrade items with their country of origin. Who knew that Fairtrade roses come from Kenya and have a lower carbon footprint than those imported from the Netherlands?

“£110 was raised to support the work of Transform Trade – a charity which campaigns for fair wages and safe working conditions for tea growers and garment workers in low income countries such as Bangladesh and India.

“The breakfast was a great occasion to remind ourselves that we depend on others for our daily food.”
