A fundraising duo from The Nottingham in March joined supermarket staff in finishing the Race For Life to raise £545 for Cancer Research.
March branch customer adviser Mia Plater-Jones and customer reviewer Carrie-Anne Johnson got together with community champion Kelly Riddell and more than a dozen of her colleagues from Tesco to run the 5k event.
Carrie-Anne said: “Here at The Nottingham we are really proud of the community link-ups we create and the events and projects we get involved with.
“Running the Race For Life was another example of that. We’d like to say a big thank-you to all of our kind-hearted customers who dug deep and sponsored us.”
A spokesman for Cancer Research UK said: “We are world leaders in finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. We receive no government funding for our research; we rely on the funds that people raise.
