TRADING PLACE

We have invited a few organisations to come and join us at the conference and have a stall in our Trading Place. Some will be selling their wares, others providing information about their work.

The Dorcas Dress Project supports people out of situations of financial hardship by providing skills training resources and pastoral care. 

They currently have 9 international sewing hubs (in Africa) and 2 sewing hubs in the UK.  Their sewing hubs are grown to improve enterprise and increase compassion.  Their international beneficiaries focus on enterprise, with compassion: they share their skills and enable people to make their size-adjustable dress.

The dress has been specially designed so it can be made in remote parts of the world where access to electricity and resources is difficult.  Their local UK sewing hubs focus on compassion, with an opportunity for enterprise: helping to improve people’s self-esteem and mental health: enabling people to mend, alter and repair clothes. Each year they look to grow their support network.  There are different ways you can help them do that: by buying a dress, by talking about the project to your friends, or by considering hosting a sewing hub in your church or connecting them to one you support internationally. For more information see their website here.


Becky stocks a wide range of the best products from a variety of outlets;

Body Shop goodies are still very popular with her customers and she has a large range of all things ethical and sustainable from The Body Shop. She will be bringing her bargain buckets for people to enjoy a rummage as well as lots of skincare and body care.

She has recently invested in a wonderful, new, Northampton based company for beautiful, high-quality press on nails and lovely lash extensions. These are a fab self-care DIY choice for our ladies to feel at their best on a budget! Again – sustainable and also locally produced.

She will also have a few catalogues for Oriflame makeup and very affordable skincare and perfumes. The catalogue can be found on her linktree but she’ll have a handful for the first few to take away.

As always she will have her hand crafted gifts – mainly slate plaques and coasters with a variety of verses and quotes.
