Tesco customers in Fraserburgh have taken part in a week-long donation drive to help stock Cancer Research UK shops.

All last week, shoppers had the opportunity to donate clothes, shoes, books and DVDs they no longer needed to Tesco Fraserburgh and help raise vital funds for life-saving research in the process.

When customers returned a filled bag, they received a £5 off voucher for when they spend more than £25 on clothing in-store.

Thanks to the generosity of Tesco Fraserburgh customers, 83 bags of items were donated over the weekend, filling a total of three cages.

Commenting, Tesco Fraserburgh employee Emma Kingaby said: “The donation drive has went really well, everyone has contributed.

“We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed - everything is going to a really good cause.”

A total of 300 stores across the UK took part in the donation drive, led by Tesco clothing brand F&F, which hoped to raise £1 million worth of donated goods for the charity.

Cancer Research UK receives no government funding so the money raised through its shops is crucial to the work of doctors, nurses and scientists who work to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
