Crossing the Forth Bridge

Tesco workers are walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise funds for their National Charity Partnership with Diabetes UK (DUK) and the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

The walk has passed through the Borders and will continue on to Fife, Tayside, Angus, Aberdeenshire and onto John O’Groats.

Over 90 colleagues have donned their walking boots and are striding anything from a gentle 5km to 50km.

Almost 30 years ago, six Tesco colleagues walked the same route to raise funds for charity.

Tony McElroy, Tesco’s head of communications in Scotland, said: “Over the last few years we’ve managed to raise £21m for our National Charity Partnership, which is helping to prevent the occurrence of Type 2 diabetes and heart and circulatory disease.

“This undertaking is a fitting way to go that extra mile to celebrate the contribution we’ve made and continue helping our customers, colleagues and communities live healthier lives.”
