The latest in-store fundraising campaign by Tesco aims to help Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK by asking shoppers to round up their purchases to the nearest £1.

Customers can do this at self-service check outs between January 31 and February 13.

Tesco also hopes the campaign will raise awareness throughout Ross-shire about the important work the three charities do to help improve peoples lives.

Oonagh Turnbull, Head of Health Campaigns at Tesco, thanked Tesco shoppers in Ross-shire for their generosity, which will make a significant difference to many people’s lives.

She added: “The funds raised will continue to support the health of UK communities at such a critical time. Our health charity partners rely on donations to continue their awareness, prevention and research work.”

The campaign is part of the Health Charity Partnership between the charities and Tesco, aimed to inspire and support Tesco colleagues, customers and families to make healthier food choices and live healthier lives.

On behalf of the Health Charity Partnership, Caro Evans, director of Partnerships at Cancer Research UK, said: “We’re delighted once again to be teaming up with Tesco to raise funds for research and for the vital support our charities provide. Cancer, heart and circulatory diseases, or diabetes affect nearly all of us so by working alongside Tesco we aim to empower millions of people to make healthier choices that can help lower their risk of these conditions.

"As always, we want to say a huge thank you to Tesco colleagues and customers in Ross-shire for their support. With your help we can continue our work and continue to tackle some of the UK’s biggest health challenges.”
