Cardiff Extra raise over £500
Tesco fundraisers join together with Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to save lives
Tesco colleagues from the Cardiff Extra store raised £560 at a Masquerade Ball at the Holland Hotel on Newport Road, Cardiff last weekend (24th October). They were raising funds for the National Charity Partnership between Tesco, Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Tesco has been fundraising for the Partnership since January 2015.
The fundraising event, for Diabetes UK and the BHF, was a charity ball entirely coordinated by colleagues. The money raised has contributed significantly towards the Cardiff Extra store’s £6,000 fundraising total to date. Tesco’s fundraising is helping to fund projects across the UK, which will encourage millions of people to reduce their risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes by leading a healthier lifestyle.
Sara Williams, National Charity Partnership Fundraising Manager for Wales, said: “Thank you so much to everyone who supported Tesco colleagues on the night and helped to raise £560.
“Heart disease and Type 2 diabetes are both serious conditions that can shorten lives. The money raised by this event will help us to provide projects across the UK that will help people to live healthier lifestyles and help to prevent these conditions. By supporting us you have all played a part in helping people live longer, healthier lives.”
The three year partnership between Tesco, Diabetes UK and the BHF aims to raise millions of pounds to help save lives through helping millions of people to eat better and get active, reducing their risk of serious ill-health in the future, as well as helping to fund the vital work of the BHF and Diabetes UK across the UK.
