Traidcraft Update

Good news!

At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors a scheme was drafted and approved to enable Traidcraft to continue selling their goods on a very small scale.  To this end a new catalogue will be sent out at the end of March 2019.  All foodstuffs except Geobars will continue to be traded as well as all drinks.  Some crafts will also be available to buy, but Traidcraft will be selling crafts made by overseas producers that have already been imported into the U.K.  Sadly they will no longer deal directly with their former overseas producers.

Traidcraft Exchange, its sister development charity, is fundraising in order that Traidcraft’s former overseas partners receive some compensation and recoup some of their lost income.

Traidcraft needs your support now even more. Please therefore continue to make every effort to buy their fairly traded foodstuffs and drinks from our DBC Community Greengrocers shop in Woodingdean. Thank you for your support in the past.

“Open the Book” Schools’ programme

For several months a small group of Christians from local churches (including DBC) have been visiting Woodingdean Primary School taking scripted Bible stories to share with the children.

Following the success of this project it is hoped to be able to extend into Rudyard Kipling Primary School, if enough volunteers can be found.

Please pray for the continuing work and proposed expansion of this valuable outreach to children in our area.
