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

Staff in food stores, travel branches, post offices and pharmacies across the area held cake sales, quizzes and more took on the charity day .

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