Fundraising for Cancer Charity

March 26, 2024

Samworth Challenge, May 2024

At the end of March, we pledged to support a charity fundraising effort by four members of Tesco’s supply chain team.

James Clark, Matt Chapman, Austin Gwilliam and Grace Mitchell wrote to us to explain that, in May, they would be taking part in the Samworth Challenge, aiming to raise £2,000 for The Brain Tumour Charity. The event, which is known for being physically demanding, takes place in the Lake District and entails 10 hours of cycling, hiking and kayaking. The team made the commitment in memory of Grace’s aunt, Kim Mitchell who passed away in February 2023.

The Brain Tumour Charity is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally.

Anyone wishing to support the team can make a pledge via their dedicated Just Giving web page.
