Headington Fairtrade Co-operative is a volunteer-based organisation, and our success depends on the dedication of people who give their time, expertise and energies without pay. A paid, part-time manager helps provide consistency and vision.

Get Involved

Based in Headington, Oxford, the Windmill Shop offers an extensive range of fairtrade products including food, beverages, crafts, gifts, stationery and household products.

Many of our volunteers serve in the shop, on a rota basis, and there are never less than two people on duty during opening hours. A co-ordinator oversees the day-to-day running. A paid manager role, part-time building up to full-time (or to a job-share for two people) has been added as the business has grown. Other volunteers are involved in ‘back-room’ activities such as unpacking stock, pricing and displaying goods, maintaining records, book-keeping and DIY jobs.

Volunteers receive appropriate training, both initially and on an on-going basis.

If you would like consider becoming one of the volunteer team, please contact us.

Here are some of the lovely team, braving the chill of an early spring Sunday afternoon:

Flip-flop Animals

Environmental clean-up and fair trading go hand-in-hand to make brightly coloured, patterned animals in various sizes, which are crafted from recycled plastic harvested from the flip-flops washed up along Kenya's coastline.
