Hackney helps launch Fairtrade world record attempt

9 Mar , 2009  

Hackney went bonkers for Fairtrade bananas over the weekend as part of the world’s biggest banana-eating event.

Residents joined forces with hundreds of other Fairtrade supporters across the country to help break the record for the most bananas eaten during a 24-hour period.

Council speaker Ian Rathbone led the borough’s efforts in the challenge at the town hall on Mare Street.
