BRADFORD Cathedral is celebrating ten years as a Fairtrade place of worship.

The commitment started with an award back in 2009, spearheaded by Canon Andy Williams and his wife Jennie.

The cathedral continues to focus on Fairtrade with its tea and coffee provisions as well as running a stall after the morning Eucharist every Sunday selling a whole range of goods including chocolate, cooking oils and biscuits, as well as seasonable items like advent calendars.

Elaine de Villiers, part of the Bradford Cathedral EcoGroup: “We recognise that any purchase we make has a knock-on effect, especially in the developing world where much of our food, wood for our furniture and the cotton for our clothes is grown. Many products are made in a way which uses a workforce who are not paid a just, living wage."
