Store donations will help charities

-

Shoppers at Perth’s Tesco stores will be able to give a big boost to three life-changing charities that have been heavily impacted by COVID-19.

The shops are supporting the Tesco Health Charity Partnershi­p’s appeal to raise money for Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK from February 26 to 28.

Tesco customers can make a donation by rounding up their shop in store to the nearest £1 at self-service checkouts. All funds raised will go directly to the three charities.

Due to the pandemic, each charity has already seen its income reduced drasticall­y due to the cancellati­on of fundraisin­g events and temporary closure of shops.

OonaghTurn­bull, head of health campaigns at Tesco, said: “Our customers have always been so generous in helping us support such good causes, and there’s never been a more important time as now to give a little help to power the life-changing work of Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.”
