A double-strength Big Brew...


Whether you’re a veteran of the Big Brew, or new to hosting events, there’s never been a better time to get your community together for a cup of fair trade tea or coffee and some fundraising fun!

Last year, amazing Traidcraft supporters raised over £70,000 – and this year, we can do even better! Thanks to the generosity of the UK Government, every penny raised at a Big Brew event held between 12th January and 11th April 2018 will be DOUBLED.

It’s easier than you might think to hold an event. We’ve produced a shiny new resource pack, containing everything you need to get your friends and family together. You can order one for free here, and to help you out even more, we’ve put lots of beautiful bonus items (and spares!) on our website for you to download.

Whether you’re inviting people at a school or church, or a group of friends and family, who wouldn’t want to come along and change the world with tea and cake?

This year, Fairtrade Fortnight is between the 26th February and 11th March – and it’s a great time to support hidden entrepreneurs. At Traidcraft Exchange we are all about fair and just trade (in fact our partner company, Traidcraft plc, invented it!). This year’s hidden entrepreneur appeal focuses on the people turning their potential into profit, and you can read all about them here.

So make twice the cakes, invite twice as many friends and neighbours, and help make double the difference for hidden entrepreneurs in developing countries!

If you’d like any support, or we can help you out in any way, please do drop us a line at hello@traidcraft.org, or give us a call on 0191  497 6445.
