On Saturday 14 April, South Thanet MP, Craig Mackinlay, joined forces with Tesco staff and Cancer Research UK volunteers at Tesco Westwood Cross to fundraise and encourage people to sign-up for Race for Life events.
The money raised will go towards vital research into over 200 types of cancer that affect men, women and children.
Craig Mackinlay MP commented:
“Improving outcomes for cancer sufferers is extremely important to all of us and, while I am encouraged that UK cancer survival rates have never been higher, there is still more to be done.
“That’s why I was delighted to support Tesco Turns Pink at Westwood Cross and meet with store staff and managers, as well as Cancer Research UK’s hardworking volunteers who are helping to promote the charity.
“There was a brisk trade at the tombola stall for which Tesco very generously donated the prizes.
“Tesco has proudly partnered with Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life as their main sponsor for 17 years and I congratulate both organisations for their excellent work in this very important area.”
