Tesco trekkers complete their latest adventure raising money for local and national charities
Posted by Simon, 22nd August 2018, views: 223

Barrow’s Tesco trekkers have survived their Lake’s expedition raising money for charities – including Mind in Furness.

Inspired by a trip to the Grand Canyon, Tina Bouanba, decided to launch her own adventure. This month she and nine other colleagues canoed the length of Windermere before trekking back to the YMCA base in Lakeside. The money raised by the group will be for local charities Mind in Furness and A Stitch Different, alongside national charities the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

The group set out from the YMCA in Lakeside on August 13, paddling canoes from Lakeside 11 miles to Ambleside.

After landing they headed into the wild, trekking back to where they started. Tina said donations can be made by calling into Tesco Extra in Hindpool Road. Other fundraising events such as a tombola will also held at the store to add help raise even more money.
