The supermarket chain’s smaller neighbourhood stores in Havering, Redbridge, Newham and Barking and Dagenham collectively managed to raise £2,586.59 during a three-day fundraising drive.

Staff dressed in costumes and sold wands and other spooky gifts for £1 each with all proceeds going to the charity which helps care for ill children.

Angie Brown, Tesco’s community champion in Havering, told the Recorder the three-day fundraiser had been a huge hit with staff and customers.

She said: “It’s been a really fantastic way to raise money and we’re really pleased to have raised so much.

“Our small Express stores don’t always get involved with our main campaigns so it’s brilliant to see we’ve raised more than £2,500 for a cause as good as Make A Wish.”
