Over 60 Dundee Tesco Colleagues have taken part in a ‘team tesco’ 5K in aid of some incredible charities


A commendable group of more than 60 Dundee Tesco colleagues from different stores have ran their way to 5k in aid of partner charities Cancer Research UK, Diabetes UK, and the British Heart Foundation.

Whether they walked, jogged, or ran, all participants made it to the finishing line

The energetic lot headed to Crombie Country Park in April to take part in the team Tesco 5k, which was organised by Eventfull Management.

First across the finish line was capacity executive Nick Johnson in 21 minutes and 39 seconds, with team leader Victoria Simpson the fastest female in 27 minutes and 35 seconds

The runners were presented with a T-shirt and medal after making it across the finish-line.

The event raised a fantastic total of £762 for its partner charities.

Tesco’s Health Charity Partnership aims to support colleagues and customers to live healthier lives.

Hilary Brown, Tesco team leader, said:

It was wonderful to see our efforts all coming together. Our Health Charity Partnership is at the heart of not only our fundraising efforts, but is a key element of our culture here at Tesco. We’re big believers that little helps make for healthier living and that’s why we came up with the desk to 5k initiative.
