Fairtrade Church ?
70% of coffee is grown by small scale farmers - your shopping choices protect them from swings in the market and help them to receive a decent wage, which is also re-invested into projects and development.
Support Ealing Abbey in using Fairtrade - check that your group is making the effort, and if not, what could be done about it. There are lots of brands of Fairtrade coffee / tea, there must be one that suits:- this lent, don't just give it up - change !
