Sainsbury's in held an exciting session which showed how buying Fairtrade products can help various communities around the world. The session was run by colleagues from the Attleborough store and gave the children the chance to ask questions about Fairtrade and sample some Fairtrade products themselves.

Store manager Karen Watts said: 'Fairtrade Fortnight is a great opportunity for us to get out in the local community and share the importance of supporting Fairtrade. At Sainsbury's we are totally committed to supporting Fairtrade as we know that it really can change the lives of communities around the world.'

Sainsbury's has supported the scheme for 15 years.
