In the past six months, Tesco in March has helped a dozen causes and donated more than £3,000 to charities. On Monday night, representatives from these groups spoke with Tesco community champion Kelly Riddell about how the supermarket can continue to support them.

Kelly said: “We’ve helped March Rangers with their fete, Elliott Lodge with their spring fair, donated £750 to Chatteris Cricket Club for new balls, helped local charities and we work with Thomas Eaton School in Wimblington.

“At the cheese and wine evening we explained what we have done for them and what can be done in the future. I was overwhelmed by the amount of people there.”

On September 26, Kelly is helping to organise a fete at Benwick Village Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
