Asda colleague Linda Anderson is one of Tickled Pink’s most active supporters – and she’s been at the fundraising again. She recently held “the biggest tombola I’ve ever tackled” in Chesser Store, Edinburgh, and raised a fantastic £700.
Having sadly lost her mum to breast cancer, Linda herself was diagnosed with the disease in 2007. After going through a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, 3 years down the line she now only has to have a once-yearly check up and hopes to get the all clear in a couple of years time.
“Tickled Pink has always been a charity close to my heart” Linda says. “The year I was ill I was still helping fundraising”. With raffles, tombolas, car washes and many other fundraising initiatives, Linda has helped raised thousands for Tickled Pink over the past few years.
“I know a lot of customers who know my circumstances, so I get a lot of support”. This year, she even managed to persuade her husband to jump in the river Forth on January 1st in aid of Tickled Pink – which considering how much snow there was on the ground in January shows real dedication!
So far this year Linda and colleagues and customers at the Chesser store have raised £6,300 for Tickled Pink.
