FA Tesco Skills in Schools
Tesco has been working with The FA since 2007 to encourage as many boys and girls in England to get active through football. As the proud sponsor of The FA Tesco Skills, Tesco believes that sport is a great way to get fit and healthy.
The FA Tesco Skills is just one of a range of initiatives Tesco support to encourage both their staff and customers to make healthy choices. In the UK, alongside the FA Tesco Skills programme, Tesco also support the ESFA Tesco Cup, enabling more than 60,000 children to take part in the annual football cup competition. Tesco are getting even more children active through the Tesco Great School Run, with more than one million children from over 4,400 primary schools taking part by running two kilometres each.
Tesco also support Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life and have raised over £6.2 million for Cancer Research UK since 2002. Last year there were more than 230 events across the UK from May to the end of July, during which 740,000 women took part, including nearly 20,000 of Tesco’s staff.
