JTS Fair and Fine Food – Help our Producers fight Covid-19

May 19, 2020

Sadly, Covid 19 has now arrived in the developing world to make life even tougher than normal for our producers. JTS have been asking all their vulnerable producer partners what support they need in the current crisis. KASFA rice farmers in Malawi and Eswatini Swazi Kitchen from The Kingdom of Eswatini, have told us that their main need at this time is for simple handwashing facilities and soap. Therefore we have set up a Total Giving Page to raise funds to supply these basic necessities – https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/appeal/JTSsupportingourproducers or To make a food order go to www.jts.co.uk/shop Together, we can help the most vulnerable people fight this global pandemic. Let’s give them a chance.

Collecting ‘Ring Pulls’ from cans

April 20, 2020

The ring pull collection has now stopped. They were sent in vast numbers to the Philippines where people made them into jewellery and handbags which they then sold for funds for their disaster areas. Sheila Prentice from the women’s group who organised the collection would like to thank everyone for their contributions over the past two years.
NB – Please feel free to continue to collect the ring pulls as there may be another charity who could benefit from them.
