Successful fundraising fancy dress day for Tesco staff

STAFF at Tesco stores across North Devon donned piratical outfits, shivered their timbers and sailed the seven seas for charity on Friday.

STAFF at Tesco stores across North Devon donned piratical outfits, shivered their timbers and sailed the seven seas for charity on Friday.

They joined colleagues across the country for a day of fancy dress and activities to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, chosen as Tesco Charity of the Year 2009.

At Tesco in Braunton they put a Peter Pan spin on the pirate theme, with manager Steve Dillon posing as Captain Hook, customer services manager Michelle Friendship as Peter Pan plus a host of pirates and Pan characters.

Staff with collection buckets scoured the store looking for plunder, as well as taking part in a variety of activities including an endless row across the "seven seas" on a pirate ship rowing machine or the "opportunity" to be eaten by the Ticking Crocodile!

The Braunton staff hope to raise �2,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and money raised at the store will be spent in the area to provide vital specialist equipment for local children with the condition or other muscle wasting disease to help them lead happier, more independent lives.
