Congratulations to Steven and the amazing team at Northfield Community Centre who have been awarded a £5,000 grant by the Asda Foundation.

The money will go towards refurbishing the kitchen and toilets at the centre which is an integral part of community and holds summer play schemes for hundreds of children. Our Middleton Park store's community champion Jan, who helped Steven with the application, said: "It is fantastic news; we can't wait to see the transformation. We have been supporting the centre for a number of years, donating to the food bank and supplying arts and crafts especially during the summer holidays. I first met Steven a few years ago after l contacted the centre and told them about our Green Token Giving. They applied and were runners up receiving £200. Oh my, l had never had such a happy reaction presenting him with the cheque. It was like they had won the lottery. Steven has great energy and commitment and passion for his community and the centre which l have visited many times." Jan, together with store manager Craig, presented the Asda Foundation cheque to Steven – pictured here with his children – on a recent visit to the centre where Craig had a tour of the building and even had a go at boxing.
