Hall of Fame award for Tesco fundrais­ers

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

Staff and cus­tomers at Dum­fries’ Tesco Ex­tra at Cuckoo Bridge have earned a place in the “Hall of Fame” of two na­tional char­i­ties.

Di­a­betes UK and the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion have been so im­pressed by the fundrais­ing achieve­ments from the store that they pre­sented man­ager Vince Ly­don and com­mu­nity cham­pion Anne Croucher with a cer­tifi­cate at a cer­e­mony in Lon­don last week.

Anne said: “We are de­lighted to be in their Hall of Fame as a thanks for the fundrais­ing over the past three years.

“Staff and cus­tomers have gone out of their way to take part or sup­port any of the fundrais­ing events we have done over the past three years which has gen­er­ated over £55,000 for the two char­i­ties.

“We even topped the UK Tesco stores’ charts for fundrais­ing when we raised £23,000 in one of the years. We are grate­ful to every­one who has sup­ported us.”
