Local guides take part in Co-op Fairtrade chocolate tasting event

Date published: 05 March 2018

A group of local guides took part in a Fairtrade chocolate tasting event at a local Co-op store on Saturday 3 March.

Girls from 32nd Guides, Rochdale, took part in the event at the Cutgate shopping precinct store.

The Guides are currently working towards a Guiding Badge which requires them to research Fairtrade, find stockists and to promote products.

The store provided a selection of ethically-produced Co-op Fairtrade white, milk and dark chocolate and the healthy option of bananas for customers to sample.

32nd Guides are a 'Round Three' Co-op Local Good Cause, along with Rochdale Connections Trust and the Hornet’s Foundation.

The Co-op is currently looking for local charities and community organisations to apply in Round Four. Anyone interested should visit the Co-op website and register their interest in becoming a selected Local Good Cause.
