Stu from Asda Stowmarket answers mum's request to help make fun music station
Asda customer Christine Kirby has thanked Stu Fayers from our Stowmarket store for donating a wooden pallet so she could create a fabulous music station for her four-your-old son Arthur, who's autistic.
Stu got in touch after seeing her post on the Stowmarket Community Noticeboard Facebook group asking for a pallet which she could paint and then attach instruments and various pot and pans to.
Christine said she'd seen a similar music station made from a pallet during a visit to World of Play at Ixwoth and Arthur have loved it.
She said: "I thought that I could create something similar – it's very simple but very effective. I put a plea out on Facebook and Stu kindly answered.
"It's really helpful to a child with additional needs to have access to music and movement... and sometimes you have to think outside the box a bit.
"It might seem like a small gesture, but Arthur loves it. He really enjoys making music and in the great outdoors too!
"We can't thank Stu enough. Thank you Asda for having great staff who are happy to help people within the community. In today's society people are so quick to complain about things so it's nice to highlight the good that people do."
Workhouse colleague Stu, who's worked at the store for 22 years, said: "I was just happy to have been able to help. Everyone in the warehouse always tries to help where they can.
"It's great what Christine has made out of it and I am pleased that her little boy loves it."
Stu has been nominated for an Asda service superstar award by store manager Oliver Manser.
