Mike the Reindeer will be visiting Tesco, Widnes and the Halton Stadium in aid of the Diabetes and Heart Foundation tomorrow.

Mike will be travelling to over 30 Tesco stores trying to raise as much money as he can for Diabetes and Heart Foundation, and will be making a visit to Widnes on Wednesday 7th December 2016.

Mike will firstly be at Tesco Extra, Widnes before visiting Halton Stadium to see where Widnes Vikings and given a tour of the stadium before moving on to the next Tesco Store in what is a mammoth journey. 

A collection bucket will be placed at the Stadium and in Tesco Extra, Widnes in an attempt to try and raise as much money as possible for a brilliant cause.

Numerous events will also be held from Friday 10th-Sunday 12th December in attempts to raise money, including people cycling on exercise bikes in store for half-hour intervals, facepainting on Saturday and Sunday and people dressing up as reindeers in store throughout the weekend. Please come along, support and help raise as much money as we can before Mike moves on to the next stage of his journey.

Justine Inman, Service Manager at Tesco, says: “It is brilliant to see that we are doing a lot of great work to raise money for Diabetes and Heart Foundation,” she said.

“Mike is travelling to around 30 stores raising money, and raising awareness for the Foundation, and the idea is get him out and about and getting people involved and so far the response has been brilliant.

“Hopefully he can have a great time with Widnes Vikings and hopefully more money can be raised during his time with yourselves.”
