Colleagues at our stores in and around Liverpool are getting into the spirit of things ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest final.

At our Sefton Park store – which is only a couple of miles away from the Liverpool Arena where the event is taking place – colleagues and customers have been enjoying the party atmosphere.

Front end section leader Chantelle Range from the store said: "The atmosphere in Liverpool has been amazing and everyone is excited as we've never hosted Eurovision before.

"In store we've been having food tasing where customers can have food from different countries and we've also had karaoke sessions with Eurovision songs from the past."

Richard Gowan, community champion at our nearby Huyton store, said he couldn't wait for the finals.

He said: "Liverpool is buzzing at the moment; the atmosphere is electric. Liverpool, being Liverpool, we've welcomed everybody with open arms.

"There's some great songs this year but I don't know who'll win. Obviously I'd like the UK to win and, if not, Ukraine.

"I went to the opening ceremony last weekend and it was dead good - there were 25,000 people there and the lights show with the drones was absolutely incredible."

At our Southport store, community champion Sharon Gregory-Wareing arranged for an Asda Foundation grant of £400 to be given to Parenting 2000, a group supporting Ukrainian refugees, to host a joint Eurovision and coronation party at the Alchemy Youth Club.

And stores in other parts of the country are showing their support Mae Muller, who's representing the UK – like here in our Boston store:

Good luck to Mae and everyone else taking part.
