Ashington Veterans and Elders Institute has been around for a century and predominantly has been for men up until a few years ago. Asda have been supporting the group throughout their journey to become more inclusive in the community with our green tokens, grants and raffle prizes.
Now we've heard that Helen (pictured) is to become the first female trustee in the group's history. Helen is a volunteer and has helped create a coffee morning group as well as support with the gardening group. Congratulations Helen!
