Be part of the change right here on your doorstep
There is a whole variety of ways to take part in the process, apart from simply shopping! If you have a bit of time to spare, volunteering in the shop is fun, and vital in supporting our shop staff. If you are running an event of your own and need resources, or want to have a stall with a fantastic range of fairly trade goods we can help you with leaflets, speakers, or products. Our newsletter is there to keep you informed about developments. Or you might want to support fair trade financially by buying shares in the co-operative.
It is all part of our commitment at Fairtrade at St Michaels to make trading fairly fun and feasible.
