A PONTELAND supermarket gave a helping hand to local organisations during Fairtrade Fortnight.

A hamper of Fairtrade goods which are sold in Sainsbury’s was donated to Ponteland Fairtrade co-ordinator Steve Helm to display at events held during the period.

It was later raffled to raise further funds for the movement.

In addition, the 1st Ponteland Beaver Scouts were invited to take part in a Fairtrade Treasure Hunt around the store. A chaotic but fun hour was enjoyed by the children, who were amazed as to how many items were supplied by the scheme that supports producers and workers in developing countries.

At the end of the evening, they enjoyed some goodies and completed posters to display in the store.
