Portobello Community Just World Shop Update


 We have been celebrating the shop being open for twenty five years and would like to thank you for your support.

Churches and schools provide over 40% of our income so the shop could not survive without your input.

Our turnover this year was £55k an increase of £2k on last year.  Over the 25 years we have sold £1.3 million of goods which  have helped our producers work their way out of poverty and provide food, shelter, education and health care for their families

Unfortunately our work is not finished.  There is still a great deal more to be done and with your help and support we will continue our work.

We have a great team of volunteers both in the shop and the folk who collect their stalls monthly and sell the goods for us.

With the small profit made this year we have decorated the  shop and hope you will come along and see the beautiful display of crafts we have on offer. We  have also donated £250.00 each to Water Aid, Mary’s Meals, Practical Action and the Vine Trust. 

Thank you once again and for your support. We are truly blessed to have such dedicated people giving their time and energy to fairtrade.

Our own P7 pupil Isla spent time working with Morag and Jim before Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed the experience too!
