Olympic fever hit Exmouth as Tesco superstore hosted a Rio Olympics-inspired fundraiser.

Dancers from Freestyle Fever helped staff at the Salterton Road store get the party mood going as they celebrated Brazilian culture to raise money for Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation.

At the fundraiser, there was face-painting, food tasting, a conga around the store and limbo dancing. Tesco is in the process of counting how much money it raised. Sue Brown, community champion at Tesco, who is planning a skydive in October in aid of the two charities, hoped the fun raised awareness of the causes.

She said: “It was a fantastic day, everyone really enjoyed it and hopefully we raised a lot of money and raised the profile of these charities.”
