Asda staff to raise money for young Grantham cancer patient Charlie Tatchell




Asda staff will take part in a non-uniform day tomorrow (Saturday) and fund-raisers will be bag-packing to raise money for young cancer patient Charlie Tatchell.

The fund-raiser will take place at the Grantham store. Money is being raised for Priory Ruskin Academy student Charlie, 14, who has been diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma and is now undergoing six months of chemotherapy treatment.

KaraHarrison, who has been helping to fund-raise for Charlie, said: “Charlie’s Angel’s and others will be packing the customers’ shopping from 11am until 5pm. Any cash donations can be given at the end of the checkouts and any other donations can be given to the customer service desk or to Nicki Morton or Kim Holden.”

Kara and many other friends of Charlie’s family have been raising money for him and the Teenage Cancer Trust ward at Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham where Charlie has been receiving his treatment. Recently, six school friends raised more than £1,000 when they had their heads shaved. To find out more about the fund-raising go to www.facebook.com/tatchelltogetherness
