Tesco backs muscular dystrophy campaign with ATM donations

Tesco logo

Tesco Personal Finance is giving customers the opportunity to support the Tesco Charity of the Year, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, just by using a cash machine at Tesco.


For every transaction made using a cash machine until the end of February 2010, the company will make a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's Giving children equipment to be independent appeal, which aims to raise £3 million to fund vital, specialist equipment for children with muscular dystrophy.


Muscular dystrophy is a devastating, incurable and life-limiting condition that causes muscles to waste away, making children progressively weaker and preventing them from performing simple tasks that we take for granted, such as turning the pages of a book or brushing their hair. It is estimated that over 8,000 babies and children in the UK have muscular dystrophy or a related muscle wasting disease. There is no cure for the condition.
