Uckfield shop manager in charity challenge


Aaron Holmes, a brave manager at Tesco in Uckfield, has volunteered to have a big bucket of ice thrown over him every hour for six hours on September 13.

It’s all part of the store’s mega ice bucket challenge where two prize draw winners get the chance to up-end the bucket (so heavy it takes two to carry) filled with ice and stone-cold water. They also get to nominate someone else via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Aaron and staff are also making donations to ALS (for motor neurone disease) and other proceeds on the day will go to Diabetes UK, the store’s charity of the year.

Aaron said: “A lot of Tesco Express southern region staff have also been asked to join in.”
