STAFF from a Nailsea store donned eye-patches and bandanas to take part in a pirate-themed fundraiser for Diabetes UK.

Employees from Tesco took turns on the rowing machine and managed to clock up more than 54 miles on Saturday.

The event raised £872 for the charity and staff would like to thank their customers and colleagues for donating to the cause.

The store also raised £477 last month in the Tour de Tesco, which was held at the same time as the Tour de France.
