Mr Twamley will race the London Marathon in a skirt after he exceeded his fundraising target. Paul pledged to run dressed as Jean from the restaurant if more than £4,000 was raised for Leukaemia and Lymphoma research before the race. After a massive £1,187 was donated by generous Tesco’s customers at a bag packing event on Saturday, Paul has exceeded that figure and is well on the way to raising £5,000!
Thanks to students Priscillia Odia, Chelsiea Marklew, Kelly Sherlock, Luke and Ella Twamley, Ethan Misciali, Connor Paterson and Alice Linden, who kindly volunteered their time, as well as former and present staff members who also helped at the bag packing event.
Paul is now limbering up to run the marathon this Sunday and a coach-load of supporters from Brooke Weston is travelling down to cheer him across the finish line.
