Tesco Hailsham has been supporting the very popular You Raise Me Up charity.

Here is Tesco Community Champion Christine: “As a store we donated raffle prizes that were recently delivered by Jason Dann, our Store manager, and Christine South, our Community Champion, to help with their continuing fund raising at You Raise Me Up.

“We recently received a request for raffle prizes from Lesley at the ‘You Raise Me Up’ charity.

They are a local charity who raise money for the support of families that have lost a very dear child aged between 16 – 25 years. The charity is entirely funded through charitable donations and fundraising events to be able to continue helping families with their bereavement.

I was recently given a Playstation 4 to donate to a charity and when I discussed this with Jason our store manager, he agreed that it would be going to such a wonderful and well-deserved charity.

Jason and I, Christine the Community Champion, was invited to go along to meet Lesley at their cafe in Polegate High Street. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed chatting over a cup of tea learning all about the charity and the amazing work they do.

Other prizes were also given, including a jar full of sweets for ‘Guess How Many Sweets@

The raffle was last night at Eastbourne Borough for their 10-year anniversary party. We wish them well and hope they are able to raise lots of money and look forward to helping them again.”
