Competition winner Cerys has keen eye for Fairtrade goods

MALVERN youngster Cerys Roskams showed she had a keen eye for a fair deal as she triumphed in a contest celebrating Fairtrade.
Members of the Malvern Fairtrade Group challenged shoppers to find as many Fairtrade products as they could on sale in the town centre.
And when the results were in there was no one who could match the 10-year-old Northleigh Primary pupil, who counted no fewer than 47 different items on sale in Waitrose, Greenlink, Oxfam, the Bran Tub, Julian Graves, Iceland and W H Smith.
Receiving her prize of a £30 cheque and a hamper donated by Waitrose at Malvern tourist information centre (TIC), Cerys said: “I had heard about Fairtrade at school and in the youth club my mum runs and I really enjoyed doing the competition, which took me about three hours altogether.”
