Asda Nuneaton home shopping driver talks to nursery children on hero day

June 17, 2021

To the children and staff at Willow Brooke Day Nursery in Nuneaton, our home shopping driver Scott Brotherhood is one of their pandemic heroes.

So when they were holding a 'Heroes Day', they invited Scott to come in and to chat to the youngsters about his role and show them his van.

Scott, who delivers to the nursery every Monday from our Nuneaton store, said: "The children absolutely loved it. They came out in small groups and took it in turns to ask questions and look at the van. It was great to see the excitement in their faces. It was such an honour to be considered as one of their heroes."

Sue Plowman, the store's e-commerce trading manager, says Scott, who's worked at the store for 10 years, is a valued colleague who's worked throughout the pandemic.

She said: "Scott's built up a really good relationship with the nursery and we were more than happy to oblige and educate the children about what we do. We were so happy to make this visit possible!"

The store's community champion Adele Coady added: "When I had heard that Scott was going to be visiting the nursery I thought it was such a lovely idea! The feedback from the nursery was really positive and it sounds like the children had an amazing time learning about what our delivery drivers do. Scott has built up a great rapport with the nursery and it reminds us of what an impact we have on the local community."

Sophie Maltby, the nursery's assistant manager, says the children always love seeing Scott.

She said: "Scott comes every Monday with our groceries, but this time they helped take the bags off the van and carry them inside. They asked a lot of questions and were very inquisitive.

"Each year we always do a 'People Who Help Us Week', but this time it was a little different because of the pandemic. We wanted to show the children where our food came from and how it is delivered to us.

"During the week the children saw a farmer with his tractor, a lorry driver and, of course, Scott."
