Get in the pink to help charity

Rob George 22nd Apr, 2021   0

SHOPPERS are being invited to be in the pink this weekend and help a town supermarket raise cash for Cancer Research UK (CRUK).

Tesco is turning pink from Friday (April 23) to Sunday (April 25) to raise awareness for CRUK and invite shoppers to wear something pink to celebrate.

The 2021 extravaganza is extra special as it marks two decades of partnership between Tesco and CRUK.

Staff will be in the pink to mark the occasion and hope customers join in with the fun.

Lindsay Roach, Community Champion at Evesham Tesco said: “We have been happy to support CRUK for 20 years as a nationwide company. CRUK is such a worthy cause and cancer unfortunately touches so many of our lives.”

“Please come along and donate if you are able to this very much needed charity and if you wear something pink you will be entered into a free prize draw to win a hamper of pink.

To mark more than a year since the pandemic begin, store chiefs would like to give the community an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ with an appearance on their in-store board.

Who would you like to thank? An individual, family, friend or a group of people? Has someone been doing your shopping? Taken your dog for walks due to you shielding? Given you a bunch of daffs to cheer you up? Or a group like Freedom Centre who has been delivering hot meals to the elderly of Badsey.

“I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to thank their 86-year-old parents for embracing new technology so I can zoom them regularly,” Lindsay added.

Shoppers can drop off their good wishes at the Customer Service desk or pin it on the display themselves.
