Seaton supermarket worker has his head shaved to raise £639 for Diabetes UK
A hair-razing experience helped Seaton Tesco worker John Steer boost a medical charity’s finances.
His sponsored head shave, which took place in the Harbour Road store, netted £639 for Diabetes UK – the supermarket’s chosen charity of the year.
Local hairdresser Katie Earley did the clipping and the store’s community champion Rhoda Snell said it had all been a great success.
She added: “We want to say a massive than you to all our customers and staff who supported us. This event was held to celebrate being with Diabetes UK for a year.”
Meanwhile Tesco’s fundraising at the end of February raised a fantastic £2,134 for the “Somerset Flood Appeal”.
“We did this by holding a prize draw, in-store tabletop sale and a ‘name the bear’ competition,” said Rhoda.
“Six people guessed his name correctly – it was Wellington. The winner drawn was Molly Clinch from The Dolphin, in Beer.”
