We are deeply saddened by the recent sudden death of our dear friend and passionate fair-trader Elizabeth Whitwick. Elizabeth was always an active and inspirational part of the fair trade community and was one of the determined team which set-up The Windmill fair trade shop in Headington. The great success of the shop is a testament to Elizabeth’s zest for life and the team she worked with.
Aswell as her commitment to The Windmill, Elizabeth was the Oxford Fairtrade Coalition Treasurer and we valued her commitment to our team. She was warm, generous, dedicated and extremely hard-working in her pursuit of social justice and fairness. We will miss her greatly and our thoughts are with her colleagues at The Windmill and her daughter.
Elizabeth’s funeral is taking place at Holy Trinity Church, Headington Quarry, Oxford at 2pm, Thursday 10th March 2016. Bright colours requested.
