Tesco is pleased to be supporting Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 as the two join forces to launch Stand Up To Cancer in the UK. The Stand Up To Cancer campaign originated in the US and has since raised an incredible £100m for cancer research.
The highlight of the UK campaign was a night of live television on Channel 4 on Friday 19 October and Tesco stores across the country supported the day by holding fund-raising activities in store.
Tesco’s Beverley store joined in by holding a hula hoop marathon. Staff member Rachael Hiscott led the way by hula hooping for an incredible five hours with shoppers and staff encouraged to challenge her.
A fantastic £237 was raised with all money going to Cancer Research UK, Tesco’s charity of the year
