Fairtrade at Lee Abbey means more than just teas, coffees, and products in the Shop.

All the Lee Abbey Community members commit to care for the poor and stand up against injustice as followers of Jesus Christ. Because of that commitment, we:

  • Ensure that food and drink we serve is Fairtrade wherever possible
  • Buy decor items, products in the Shop and Tea Cottage from recognised Fairtrade suppliers

With the international Community being from over 20 different countries, it naturally follows that we would seek to be supportive partners with producer groups through Fairtrade.

Lee Abbey’s Fairtrade commitment has also been recognised by regional organisation Bristol and Southwest Fairtrade. Their annual Southwest Fairtrade Business Awards have selected Lee Abbey Shop and the entire Conference Centre for Gold or Overall Winner twice so far.
