BRADFORD Cathedral is calling on everyone to join them for the online Big Fairtrade Breakfast next month.

Though the annual Fairtrade Breakfast cannot take place in the cathedral this year, it will be held online on Sunday, March 7 at 9am.

All people need to do is stock up on Fairtrade or locally-sourced breakfast items, and join others across the city on a Zoom-hosted breakfast.

Alongside joining in for a virtual session, Bradford Cathedral are also encouraging people to share your #BreakfastSelfie on social media with your Fairtrade or locally-sourced goods, to help spread the Fairtrade message.

The Reverend Canon Mandy Coutts, of Bradford Cathedral, said: “Fairtrade is one of the easiest ways we can transform other people's lives.

"I love buying Fairtrade because it gives other people a life worth living.

"Products such as chocolate taste so much sweeter when it's Fairtrade, because it means a family will be given a fair wage to put food on the table, send their children to school and afford the medicine they need when they get ill.

“At our Fairtrade breakfast we will have an opportunity to enjoy our breakfast together, find out what other Fairtrade products are available and share ideas. So please join us and help make the world a better place.”

Also available online are details of other events happening during the fortnight – including an ecumenical service - and a look back at the history of the Bradford Fairtrade Zone as it marks its 15th anniversary.
