I don't think it will work in distribution, they have other fund raising going on besides which I would imagine such an event wouldn't be as productive as a store with no passing public to make donations.

I saw it in store but distribution, really?
My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

Staff from the Tesco Maintenance team based in Welwyn Garden City – Hertfordshire, are racing the Bupa Great Manchester Run on 26 May to raise money for Diabetes UK.

The team, who are preparing to run four half marathons across the UK in six months, have incorporated their first team race in Manchester as part of their gruelling training regime.


Good luck to them, hope they can maintain their performance over the 4 races  :d:

[you]Tesco delivery driver delivers baby son[/you]

"A very special delivery! Tesco driver delivers his own baby son after his wife goes into labour early"

Quote
A supermarket driver was faced with the most important delivery of his life -  when his wife went into labour.

Tesco delivery driver Ben Heppenstall was at home alone with his fiancee Rachel Smith celebrating his birthday on July 18 when she went into labour a month early.

He rang the emergency services who told him he would have to deliver the baby himself - and his experience delivering groceries paid off, as baby Kobi Heppenstall arrived safely into the world to join his father's birthday celebrations.


My congratulations and best wishes to them.

BIG-HEARTED staff at Tesco in Greenock know the name of the game when it comes to fund-raising for charity.

[you]What this Tesco manager did to help a cancer patient[/you]

Quote
Tesco manager Gemma Cannon went above and beyond for a customer who wanted to deliver a care package to her friend dealing with cancer.

..........she was trying to get food delivered to her friend, who lives alone and had been through a gruelling chemotherapy session.


Cancer/chemo, nasty and even nastier when coping on ones own.  Well done to Gemma  :thumbup:   :)
