By Jonathan Clark


TESCO Extra in Elgin raised £1300 for charity with a three day dancing event in July.

Tesco raised money for Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK as part of a three day dance marathon which took place in thousands of Tesco stores across the country from July 18-20.

Tracy Gourlay, community champion at Tesco Elgin, said: "The customers reacted well to the dancers and the community support was great. We had a significant amount that came down specifically to watch them.

"We have to give a huge thanks to the June Roy dancers who were brilliant. They came down three days in a row."

The six dancers performed for three hours one day and four hours the other two days. Zippos Circus were also involved, with their dancers performing routines at the front of the store.

Tracy, along with colleagues Susana Simeos and Ryan Gordon, travelled down to Wembley Stadium, London, to break a world record.

Roughly 5000 Tesco workers, along with their friends and family, broke the record for the world's longest ever dance marathon relay.
