STAFF at a St Leonards supermarket dressed up in pink to raise money for charity.

Scores of people at Asda in Battle Road donned pink hats and wore fancy dress, all with a pink-related theme, and collected more than £630.

The event was part of the firm’s Tickled Pink campaign, which was set up in 1996 to raise money to help improve the lives of people with breast cancer.

It benefits two breast cancer charities, namely Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign and since it started, more than £25 million has been raised.

Caroline Courtland-Smith, the store’s community colleague, who is responsible for organising fundraising events, said: “There was a competition for the most flamboyantly dressed colleague and the event went really well. Our customers are also so generous with their donations.”
