Colleagues host litter picks as part of The Big Help Out to mark the King’s Coronation
Colleagues from our stores across the UK have joined forces to host litter picks as part of The Big Help Out to mark the King’s coronation.
The initiative is seeing thousands of organisations come together to help clean up the local community.
To further support the Big Help Out, Asda colleagues were offered a paid day off to take part in the Great Community Clean Up, bringing communities together to make a difference in their area by arranging litter picks in places such as parks, community centres, beaches and canals.
Community champions from stores in the East Yorkshire region, pictured above, came together to pick up litter and tidy up the foreshore at Hessle under the Humber Bridge.Community campion Geoff, from our Mount Pleasant store, said: "We managed to pick up three full bags of rubbish between us and leave it looking great for people to enjoy with their families.Here's what some of our stores have been up to.
