Fairtrade at St Andrew’s

Serving customers in new ways at this challenging time!


Deliveries, shop appointments, stalls.

Delivery Service

We’re now offering a free and contactless delivery service in Bedford and the surrounding area. Day and time of delivery will be arranged with you by our volunteer drivers. Order anything from the Traidcraft catalogue, from our grocery list, from the Companions Real Bread list or indeed anything you can remember seeing in our shop.

This site let’s you browse some of the things we have in great variety in the shop and sourced from various fair trade suppliers in addition to Traidcraft. This is not an online shop just a way to see some of the things we have in stock and which you might like to add to orders. This site is growing so please check back soon to see new pages and items.

How to order goods for delivery

Phone Brenda Mayoh our buyer and delivery service organiser on 01234 268574 and dictate your order or email your order to fairtrade@standrewsbedford.org Please give your name, address and contact telephone number + as many details of the item as possible such as code (if there is one), name of item or a description, size if ordering things such as socks, quantity and price.

Payment

Payments for deliveries received may be made by BACS. The shop account is with the NatWest Bank, account name Fairtrade at St Andrews Sort Code 600213 Account Number 63196115 Use your surname and initial as the reference. Please don’t pay until requested to do so.

Alternatively, with your agreement, we will email you an invoice and you will be able to pay safely and easily by credit or debit card via a link in the email. Smartphone users may prefer to opt to receive a payment link by text. If none of these are possible for you, don’t worry as we’ll organise a payment method to suit you.

Perhaps you’d like an appointment to visit the shop?

Good news it’s been agreed as of 23rd March 2021 we can once again offer pre-booked shop visits.

Our small shop can’t open in the normal way at present but we are offering you the opportunity to shop safely by making appointments to visit. Browse on your own or, for example, with your partner, or child, or bubble member. The member of staff on duty will stay outside in the foyer while you are in the shop. Once you have placed anything you wish to buy in the basket provided you then return to the foyer where you can pay by card, cash or cheque.

Stalls

We hope to resume a weekly outdoor stall as soon as possible after the Easter holiday period. In the meantime please use our contactless delivery service instead which offers free delivery and no minimum order in Bedford and the surrounding area or make your own personal appointment to visit the shop.
