Disney’s special guests paid a visit to customers at Tesco in Brighouse to help raise funds for Diabetes UK.

Donald Duck and Goofy helped raise £400 for the charity which is the supermarket’s charity partner.

Organiser of the event Jacquie Ramsden said they were not going to run the event due to the weather but many youngsters had braved the snow to come and see their favourite characters.

“The store wasn’t as busy because of the snow but the stalwarts came out and showed their support which is fantastic,” she said.

“We have always been a big supporter of Diabetes UK and this year we are going to give it a real push and help raise more awareness.”

Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes.

There are currently 3.8 million people in the UK with diabetes, including an estimated 850,000 people who have Type 2 diabetes but do not know it.
