The Big Tesco Collection

The British Heart Foundation is one of Mitie’s charity partners under our GivingBack program.  We’ve committed to supporting the fundraiser, by taking part in selected Tesco stores on Friday 17 September. The British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research, and Diabetes UK are beneficiaries of the fundraising event.

We’re looking for volunteers to commit three hours in a local participating store, collecting donations from shoppers. The stores will have all the resources needed on the day, including t-shirts and buckets. All money raised will be split equally between the three charities.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​How to volunteer

As part of our collecting team, you’ll be at the very heart of this year’s big collection experience. Details of the participating stores can be found at Mitie Volunteers. Please add your name and email address against the store and the time you’re able to commit to. Upon signing up, you will receive joining instructions from British Heart Foundation and then all you need to do is turn up at the store on the day to collect your bucket.​​​​​​​
