East Didsbury get active in the name of fundraising
Tesco fundraisers join together with Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) to save lives
Six Tesco Colleagues from East Didsbury took part in the Salford 10K over the recent weekend as part of their fundraising efforts for the National Charity Partnership between Tesco, Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation (BHF), last weekend.
Six colleagues from East Didsbury took to the streets of Salford for the recent Salford 10K race, joining thousands of other local fundraisers. They were running 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.
Natalie Bunyan, Partnership Fundraising Manager for North West said: “Thank you so much to everyone who sponsored and cheered on those Tesco colleagues who took part in this event. They ran away with their fundraising goal for this event and have contributed significantly to the stores overall fundraising total.
“Heart disease and Type 2 diabetes are both serious conditions that can shorten lives. The money raised by taking on this challenge 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.
