|Thank you for your support and purchases in 2020, in person and online, you have kept us going. |
It’s been a really tough year for everyone but we are very conscious that our producers who live in the less developed southern countries of the world have had it sooo much harder than us. This is our motivation to keep working. Our producers need us to sell the beautiful products they make. Without the sales they often have no way of providing for their families.
Having said that I’m pleased to say that our suppliers have been working closely to support their producers all year. We are very proud to be part of the fair trade community that does business differently.
Lanka Kade our main toy supplier prepared food parcels for artisans in Sri Lanka. Santha drove around in his tuk tuk safely delivering to their homes.
Just Trade Uk one of our jewellery suppliers report ‘Although the situation continues to be incredibly difficult in South America and India, the teams we work with are coping well. Everyone is keen to work, so we are allocating work where we can, safely. For those unable to work we continue to distribute food parcels and financial support.’
Who knows what 2021 will bring?! Our business priority will remain the same; to come out of this crisis strong for the sake of our staff here in the UK and our producers in the less developed world. We know our producers need us to sell their products even more now than ever. Thank you for supporting us.
