A team leader at the Bradwell Foodstore has been appointed to a new role to help support communities across East Anglia.

Kym Hunt,25, has been named as a Central England Co-operative membership and community relations officer.

She accepted the job at the member-owned business to help fulfil her passions for educating youngsters and teaching people new skills.

It follows a decade working for the Co-operative, most recently as a team leader at the Bradwell Food Store.

She said: “I gained a passion for community while organising small events at store level and wanted to get involved more.

“I have seen how much more can be done in our local communities with a little personal touch - so when the opportunity came up I jumped at it.

“I want to encourage more people to become members and I would also like to spread co-operative values in a relatable way to younger people.”

As part of their work, MCROs undertake a wide range of activities from heading into schools to talk to youngsters about healthy eating to organising classes for our members to enjoy and learn new skills.

Nicci Clarke, brand engagement manager at Central England Co-operative, said: “Kym is an existing Membership and Community Council ambassador, has great links within the local community and has already delivered a number of events including healthy choices workshops.

“We are delighted to welcome her to the team and cannot wait for her to get started.”
