Leon Pileborg Dunnster, along with the supermarket’s St Albans team, raised a whopping £341.49 for Children in Need, on Friday, November 13, which will fund projects across the UK.

Shelley Crawford, St Albans Morrisons’ community champion said: “Morrisons colleagues had a wonderful time dressing up with a few Pudseys, Frozen’s Princess Elsa, The Mad Hatter from Alice In Wonderland to name but a few.”

Five-year-old Leon also made a cameo appearance dressed as superheroes Captain America and Thor.

“All in all, it was an amazing event as it coincided with World Kindness Day,” Shelley continued.
