Tesco is encouraging shoppers at its main Guildford store to support a fundraising campaign for three leading health charities.

It says last year’s campaign, titled ‘helping you to live healthier’, raised more than £1 million nationwide after customers rounded up their shop to the nearest £1 at self-service tills. February 13.

The money raised this year, from now until the end of February, is helping Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK to continue their work to improve and save lives.

In addition to the funds being raised, the campaign aims to increase awareness about the importance of making sustainable lifestyle changes that can help people to lower their risk of cancer, heart and circulatory diseases, and type 2 diabetes.

Tesco will be sharing “trusted health information” and “advice to empower customers to take small steps to help improve their health”.

Lynn Daly, Cancer Research UK spokesperson for the South East, said: “As a result of the pandemic, cancer is as urgent an issue now as it’s ever been. With around 55,800 people diagnosed with the disease a year in the South East, we will never stop striving to save and improve more lives.

“But we can’t do it alone. That’s why the support that Tesco shoppers give to the Health Charity Partnership is so important. Cancer, diabetes and heart and circulatory diseases are some of the UK’s biggest health challenges and their impact can be devastating.

“By rounding up their shop at self-service tills this February, Tesco customers will be raising funds for vital research and prevention programmes that could help thousands of people in the region – and across the UK – to live longer and healthier lives.”
