Tesco in Kidsgrove goes pink to raise money for Cancer Research UK


Employees at a Tesco store in Kidsgrove have been raising money for Cancer Research UK by wearing pink to support the Race for Life events.

The Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research into 200 types of cancer.

Tesco has been the partner of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life for 17 years.

Judith Ford, 54, from Alsager, said the fundraising “allows people to interact and the activities are bringing the community together”.

The Salvation Army has been supporting Tesco to raise as much money as possible.

Tim Stubbings, 53, and a member of the Salvation Army, said: “If you do your best and try then whatever you give is a bonus.”

Debbie Ackroyd, 48, manager at the Kidsgrove store, has been encouraging customers to get involved.

She said: “The community are very supportive, they are making donations, we have events in front of the store and we are giving out candy floss to actively promote the events.”
