More than £1,000 has been raised by Tesco in Burgess Hill for two charities in memory of an employee who recently passed away.

Over the bank holiday weekend the superstore in Jane Murray Way was joined by Burgess Hill Community Radio, mayor Jacqui Landriani and volunteers from Cancer Research UK to help raise the funds.

A Tesco spokesman said: “We would like to say a massive thank you to customers and staff who helped support our Pink Weekend.

“Just over £1000 was raised, which we will be sharing between Cancer Research UK and St Peter and St James Hospice in memory of our colleague Ray who passed away recently.”
