Bristol: Traidcraft fashion takes to the catwalk
Comment Email Print
¬†Campaigners in Downend, Bristol are planning a special event to showcase Traidcraft fashions on 24 March. The Traidcraft Fashion Show, in St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic School, is the brainchild of the local parish Justice and Peace Group. The evening will also include a meal with food from round the globe. Spokeswoman Isabella Harding, said: "We want to celebrate the many different cultures represented in our parish community. People will be bringing their favourite home recipes to provide a multicultural banquet. We have done it once before and the food was delicious. "We also want to promote the excellent range of Traidcraft fashions and give many people the opportunity of buying clothes that directly benefit the producers." Father Bernard Massey, St Augustine's Parish Priest, said: "This is the third time in the past few years that our Justice and Peace group has put on a fashion and food night and each time more and more people turn up. The public are becoming increasingly aware that fair trade now means good quality at a fair price. I'm sure the 24th will be another great night for all." The fashion show begins after the meal. There will be a chance to shop during the evening. Tickets are just £5 or £2 for a child, with a family ticket (two adults and two children) a bargain at £10. To buy your tickets please call Renuka McWilliams 0117 957 5580 or Isabella Harding 0117 983 7376 or drop into the parish office in Boscombe Crescent.
