Race for life - Tesco, Market Weighton

SUPERMARKET staff have made a dash for cash in aid of a cancer charity.

A group of women who work at the Tesco supermarket on Southgate, in Market Weighton, have taken part in one of several Race for Life events held in the region over the past couple of months to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Since May, there have been Race for Life events in Scarborough, York and Bridlington.

This Sunday there will be a 5km event in Hull which one member of staff, Jill Axup, will be entering to raise at least £150 for Cancer Research UK.

Jill, who lost her mother to cancer, has taken part in a Race for Life event every year since 2006 and each year has managed to raise at least £150.

She said: “I’ve done it the last five years. I do rally round and register everybody and push everybody to do it.”
