Throughout September our store has handed out a further £3,119 to local grass roots organisations to transform communities and improve the lives of people living within the area around the store.
Boston Rugby Football Club received a donation of £999 to help them continue providing an opportunity for all age groups and genders across Boston to play, watch, and be involved with the sport. The funding will be used to restock some of the equipment that is required to allow all of the teams to re-start training and playing - with new balls being provided for all teams from girls, boys under 13, up to the men's and women's teams. Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex benefitted from £900 of Asda Foundation funding which will be used to purchase swimming costumes, swimming shorts and towels for children aged 4 to 15 years old who have been referred to the Swimming Academy scheme. The Local Community Centre in Mitre Lane received £320 to purchase a brand-new dishwasher. As the centre is used by a diverse collection of groups, it is important that the centre remains a safe and clean environment particularly during these COVID times. The Asda Foundation also awarded funds through its Green Token Giving programme. In the most recent voting period, Boston Women's Aid came first picking up £500 while The Butterfly Hospice and Lincolnshire Emergency Medical Response both received £200. Nominations for future rounds of funding can be made through the Asda Foundation website asdafoundation.org
