The CAFOD group at the Oxford University Chaplaincy recently held a Fair Trade Breakfast between the two Sunday morning masses. These breakfasts are fast becoming a tradition in the chaplaincy with at least one every term.
Christine, a member of the CAFOD group, says “we have found that a Fair Trade breakfast is a great way to both contribute to the life of the community with a great social event and to let people try out delicious fair trade food!”
The breakfast included Fair Trade tea and coffee, lovely home-baked goods, locally made bread as well as a variety of Traidcraft spreads.
In addition to raising awareness about Fair Trade goods, the event raised £65 in donations for CAFOD.
