A FATHER has raised a staggering £125,000 for Julia’s House after walking 100km in memory of his daughter who died of a rare brain tumour.

Justin Kline, a Tesco store manager from Weymouth, completed the 24-hour charity walk in September, raising money for the children’s hospice based in Corfe Mullen.


Well done, fantastic sum of money.

[you]Mother-of-two pays for her entire £1,200 Tesco shop with COUPONS after collecting 300-a-day and donates everything to charity[/you]

Quote
A mother-of-two has smashed the record for the UK's biggest ever coupon shop after buying almost £1,200 worth of food in one go - without spending a penny.

Holly Smith, 30, from Gorleston near Great Yarmouth, did the sweep in Tesco Lowestoft, Suffolk, with her husband Callum and gave the whole lot to charity.

The 429 item haul included 200 packets of sausages, 63 pots of soup, hundreds of pounds worth of toys and 30 Quorn products.


Well done that lady, great gift by her at this time of year.

The Tesco staff painted the centre's reception, the hallway, and musical computer room.


Well done to the staff, very generous to do this in their own time.

Waitrose and Tesco are leading the way in taking on more small British suppliers, according to a new report.

Buying British In 2017, by supply chain member organisation GS1 UK, said that of the major supermarkets, Tesco as Britain's largest retailer, has afforded the most opportunities to GS1 UK's new joiners over the past five years, trading with 33 per cent of them.


About bloody time in my opinion.

A read of the entire article does seem to suggest that some companies and customers are maybe giving UK manufacturing a boost, which can only be good for all UK citizens especially those of working age.

[you]A day centre asked Tesco if it could spare some plants - what store staff did next left them speechless[/you]

Quote
“Back in April we approached Tesco in Llansamlet to see if they would like to donate any gardening tools or plants as we were planning to try and brighten our garden up so that it was more appealing for the service users we support,” said Lorraine Howells, the assistant manager.

What they actually got was a full makeover, courtesy of kind volunteers from the nearby supermarket.


Well done those staff who donated their time and labours.

This little boy was invited to get behind the Tesco cash register when the manager of his ‘favourite shop’ spotted him playing in a closed lane. David Burke, 45, admits shopping with his son Jay, who has Down’s syndrome, can be testing at times. But on October 6, the firefighter was left ‘heart-warmed’ when a manager at the supermarket in Bradford made the kind gesture.

Despite any rights or wrongs this was a nice & kind thing to do.  :thumbup:

Absolutely sometimes we have to see past all of the red tape and apply common sense and make someone’s day.
My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.
"Being a rep doesn't make a person right anymore than not being a rep makes a person wrong "

A grateful mum has tracked down a Tesco manager who saved her "dead" baby - using skills he learned on a first aid course.

Vishnu Samgi was on his way to work when he spotted a woman screaming that her baby had turned blue.

Eight-week-old Tommy Warner had stopped breathing and his mother, Charlotte-Louise, was convinced he had died.

But Vishnu, 23, saved the tot by giving him CPR and speaking to ambulance staff by phone as they raced to the scene of the drama in Leicester.
