Traidcraft

You’re probably aware of the problems currently being experienced by Traidcraft plc. As a result of the need for the trading company to significantly downsize there are serious implications for Traidcraft Exchange, the development charity. Consequently there is an urgent appeal for funds for Traidcraft Exchange to help producers find alternative markets and this is detailed in the poster on the Traidcraft board in the Legh Room. Do please read the poster and respond if you possibly can.
