From tangerine tutus and carrot-top wigs to citrus-inspired fashion choices, colleagues at Lincolnshire Co-op raised over £14,500 by going orange in aid of the MS Society.

Staff in food stores, travel branches, post offices and pharmacies across the area donned orange outfits and organised cake sales, quizzes and more for the Orange Friday charity fun day.

Community Engagement Manager Sam Turner said: “We were delighted to have raised £14,500 in just one day.

“We couldn’t have achieved such an impressive total without the support of our generous customers, and of course our dedicated colleagues.”

Lincolnshire Co-op’s charity partner is currently MS Society. The charity helps those affected by the neurological condition, Multiple Sclerosis, and all of the funds raised will go towards helping local people affected by the illness.

Area Fundraiser for the MS Society Caroline Kew said: “Thank you so much to all of the staff, customers and members of the public who made Orange Friday possible and supported it so enthusiastically - it was brilliant!

“The money raised from the event will go to support the MS Society’s Grants Programme which offers a lifeline to people in Lincolnshire directly affected by MS by funding a wide range of equipment, home and car adaptations, much needed short breaks and support for carers and families.”
