Workers at a supermarket in Bradley Stoke have pulled together to support a local youth football team.

The Under-16 Girls’ team at Bradley Stoke Youth FC will be playing in new kit next season, thanks to the generosity of staff at the town’s Tesco Extra store.

Tesco customer experience manager Joe Kilpatrick said:

“We’re delighted to be able to support an organisation that is really local to the store and at the heart of the local community.”

Receiving a cheque for £670, Martin Lee, community officer at BSYFC and manager of the U16 Girls’ team, said:

“Many thanks to Tesco Bradley Stoke for supporting the U16 Girls’ team for next season and providing a new kit for the squad. BSYFC is an FA Charter Standard Community Club with 20 teams, so the donation is very helpful and much appreciated.”

Tesco relay raises thousands for cancer charity

Posted on Monday 21st November 2016 at 12:12 am by SH (Editor)

A team of classic scooter riders prepare to set off from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke on a charity relay in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke played their part in a mammoth charity fundraising initiative during the last week of September, which raised £21,423 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The store was one of 26 in the Bristol and Somerset area that took part in a relay to transport Macmillan mascot ‘Muggy’ between each of the Tesco stores before arriving at Weston-super-Mare Pier on Friday 30th September to witness an attempt at breaking the Guinness world record for the most people to have a cream tea “in one place, in one sitting”.

Staff were challenged to use a novel form of transport when completing their relay leg and the Bradley Stoke store chose to enlist the help of local scooter club members to ferry Muggy onwards to the Eastville store in Bristol after he had arrived from Thornbury the night before.

The following day, a coach took Bradley Stoke store staff to take part in the world record attempt in Weston-super-Mare. With a total of 555 people arriving, the event found itself a few short of the 750 required to break the record, but staff said they were nevertheless “delighted” to raise so much money for Macmillan.

Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra team on the look out for further community projects

Posted on Tuesday 20th September 2016 at 9:55 pm by SH (Editor)

Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke decorate a room at Patchway Community Centre.

Staff from the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke are looking for suggestions for further community projects to get involved with after successfully completing their latest assignment, at Patchway Community Centre.

Eleven members of staff took a day out from the store to brighten up the small hall at the centre by giving it a lick of paint.

Dawn Richards, community champion at the Bradley Stoke store, says the work squads are intended to give something back to the community whilst at the same time helping to foster team spirit.

“Having a lot of people on a big job like this certainly makes it easier and we were happy to provide the paint and decorating equipment too.”

Previous projects the staff have undertaken include renovating the ladies toilet blocks at St Mary’s Old Boys Rugby Club and, in conjunction with other Tesco stores in the Bristol area, decorating a St Mungo’s hostel for the homeless.

Anyone wishing to suggest a suitable community project should write to Dawn Richards at Tesco Extra, Bradley Stoke BS32 8EF or email bradleystoke@eathappyproject.com

Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra staff raise funds for the ‘Kisses for Kaylum’ appeal

Posted on Friday 8th July 2016 at 11:31 pm by SH (Editor)

Tesco Extra Bradley Stoke staff members Dawn Richards (community champion, left) and Katie Palmer (right) invite shoppers to throw wet sponges at Atilla Kiss (home delivery manager) to raise funds for the Kisses for Kaylum appeal.

Staff at the Tesco Extra store in Bradley Stoke have taken part in a special fundraising initiative that will contribute towards the cost of potentially life-saving treatment for a five-year-old Bristol boy who suffers from a rare form of cancer.

Kaylum Ryan’s family is desperately trying to raise £280,000 so they can take him to America for a pioneering treatment for neuroblastoma, which is not available on the NHS.

Kaylum was diagnosed with the condition in July 2013 and since then has undergone chemotherapy and had several operations. He went into remission in October 2014, but nine months later his cancer returned and his parents have been told that the chance of a cure is very slim, leading them to seek a different type of treatment abroad.

On the weekend of 18th June, staff at Tesco stores across Bristol helped bolster the ‘Kisses for Kaylum’ fund by walking from store to store with a trolley and by arranging in-store money-raising activities.

Staff at the Bradley Stoke Tesco Extra store played their part by holding a raffle and offering shoppers the chance to throw wet sponges at store mangers held in a set of stocks.

Managers and staff in fancy dress also took part in the Bristol area trolley relay, by completing the stretch to the Tesco Express store at Baileys Court, after the trolley had arrived from Thornbury, via Pear Tree Road.

The Bradley Stoke store’s efforts raised £1,050 towards Kaylum’s treatment fund.
