Health charities to benefit from Tesco in-store fundraiser

Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK are to benefit from an in-store fundraiser being staged by Tesco.

The superstore will offer customers the chance to round up their shop to the nearest £1 at self-service tills in support of its fundraising activities for the three charities.

The campaign runs until October 2.

“The funds raised will continue to support the health of UK communities at such a critical time,” said Tesco head of health campaigns Oonagh Turnbull.

“Our health charity partners rely on donations to continue their awareness, prevention and research work.”

The campaign is part of the supermarket’s Health Charity Partnership with the three charities, aimed at offering health advice to staff and customers.

CRUK chief executive Michelle Mitchell added: “We’d like to thank everyone who supports the important work we all do through this campaign, and we’re grateful for the generosity of shoppers up and down the country.”

Last year the health campaign raised more than £1m for the three charities.
