St Gregory’s team raises funds to help people in developing countries become self-sufficient

A ‘Big Brew, Hidden Entrepreneur’ event was held at St Gregory’s Church Centre in Seaton in aid of Traidcraft.

It raised £236 - money which will be doubled by The Government.

The funds will help people in developing countries to build businesses that will enable them to be self-sufficient.

St Gregory’s is a ‘Fairtrade Church’ and officials thanked the many members who baked cakes, set-up the hall, attended and finally, did the washing and clearing up.

A spokeswoman for the church said: “It was a great team effort and well supported by about 50 people despite the pouring rain that afternoon!

“It was an enjoyable, social afternoon. People bought ‘surplus’ cakes and any remaining were available at coffee after the Sunday service, adding to the donations.”
