“We’ve been terribly let down by Tesco,” she rasped. “Terribly…”
Turns out that, back in April, GSC had booked this weekend at Tesco to sell their annual Super Draw tickets. The sellers were lined up. The tickets and timetable had been arranged.
And then Tesco said no.
“Someone new is looking after that side of things,” continued Kathleen, “and there’s been some kind of mix-up. They’ve double-booked, and we’re out!”
This is where, if Kathleen Kelleher wasn’t such a lady, the expletives would have flown. High. And hard.
Instead, she simply said, “It’s just not on. And it’s just not fair.”
All this on the final weekend before the November 3rd draw.
Thankfully, Tesco saw sense, and booted out another charity to make way for GSC. Ah, happy days.
The supermarket chain were smart to do so.
