A Tesco store director from Adel has raised £10,000 in memory of a colleague after walking Hadrian’s Wall - part of a huge six-figure raised for charity.

Lewis Little was part of a team of store directors from across the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland who came together to remember and honour Alastair Brown.

Alastair was the self-appointed Charity Champion amongst them who sadly died from a heart attack in March, at the age of just 44.

In memory of their friend and colleague, the group took him up on his challenge to walk the wall together as a team to raise money for the National Charity Partnership between Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Tesco.

Whilst a team of 13 store directors followed the line of Hadrian’s Wall, their colleagues in each of their stores also raised funds in Alastair’s memory by covering the same distance on treadmills. To date, the combined total raised for the NCP from this fundraiser is over £163,000.
