Tesco Lanark worker Leona Baillie is taking on a sponsored skydive to raise funds for the Tesco national charity partners - the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK. She will take part in a tandem skydive on September 30, jumping from 12,000ft.

Colleagues in the store have been fundraising in support of her. They held a mini games where staff were cycling all day, had hula hoop and press up challenges (which Leona herself won!), and a tombola. These days have raised over £600 towards Leona’s challenge.
