Tesco staff at Beverley put on their dancing shoes at the weekend to raise £112 for Diabetes UK.

Tesco stores across the UK took part in the largest simultaneous ‘Cha Cha Slide’ dance on Saturday with all money raised going towards the £10 million fundraising target for Diabetes UK.

Helping with the fundraising were performing arts students from East Riding College and dancers from Sue Spice’s Club Salsa who joined in with the ‘Cha Cha slide’, as well as performing their own routines.

Alex Boak, store manager at Beverley said: “Our customers have been very generous and I’d like to thank them all for donating to what is a very worthwhile cause.”

Paul Armadi, Director of Fundraising for Diabetes UK said: “We are delighted so many Tesco staff and customers took part in the Dance for Diabetes event.

“The money raised will make a real difference to the 3.8 million people with diabetes in the UK and help people at high risk of Type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of the condition.”
