A big thank you to home shopping driver Cammy Sherlock from our Cumbernauld store who called 999 after noticing that one of his customers was unwell and needed medical help.

Twenty-six-year-old Cammy, who's been at the store for three years, has now received a regional Asda service superstar award for his actions.

Cammy said when he called at the flat in Airdrie he was concerned as the customer, who was in her late 40s, didn't look at all well.

He said: "She was so pale; whiter than the walls. She was staggering about a bit and bumping into things.

"I asked her if she okay and if she wanted me to call anyone. She said she just needed to go to bed, but I knew something wasn't right."

Cammy decided to call 999 and an ambulance crew attended.

He said: "I''m just glad she got the help and treatment that she needed. It was the right thing to do. It could have easily have been a different story."

On receiving the award, he said: "It was a real surprise. It was something I never expected. It felt good to be recognised though."

Cammy, who works with his aunt Lynn Deakin who is home shopping section leader, says he loves interacting with his customers.

He said: "There are some great customers out there and it's nice to have a wee catch up with them when they get their shopping. For some of them we may be the only person they say in a week even. You heart kind of bleeds for them."

Lynne Morrison, the store's community champion, said everyone was pleased for Cammy receiving his award.

She said: "We are so proud of Cammy for his dedication to our customers."
