A BROWNIE pack spent an evening in the supermarket aisles to learn about its Fairtrade products.

Twenty-six girls from the 2nd Bourne Brownies visited the Anglian Co-operative store at the Burghley Centre.

Grocery team leader Steve Diamond gave them a tour of the shop to view all the Fairtrade products it stocks and gave a talk about how Fairtrade schemes have helped people in disadvantaged by providing money for education and medical care.

He said: “It was a really good visit. The girls loved it and had a great time.”

The girls also took part in a teddy bear hunt around the store, with prizes of Fairtrade chocolate for the winners.

Brownie leader Alyson Jones said: “Only one of the girls had heard of Fairtrade before the visit. They really enjoyed themselves and learned all about what was a new subject for them.

“They particularly liked the chance to go into the big freezer!”
