Stores across East Devon take part in a cycle ride to the moon

Tesco staff in Seaton took on a cycling challenge that was out of this world to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

As part of the country-wide fund-raiser, Reach for the Moon, the supermarket’s staff took it in turns to use the exercise bike to complete a journey to the moon.

The store in Seaton also took part in a exercise bike cycle challenge to celebrate the jubilee and dressed up as royalty or in red, white and blue to cycle to Buckingham Palace.

Community champion Rhoda Snell said: “We would like to thank all our customers who supported us with their donations over the two events.”

The two events raised over £900 for the cancer charity which is Tesco’s charity of the year.

Stores across the district took part in the charity challenge.
