We're proud to support Pride events across the UK this summer

Our fantastic community champions have been helping out at Pride events around the UK this summer.

They've been showing their support at lots of different Pride events in places including Bristol, Liverpool, Glasgow, Nottingham, Newcastle, Hull, Brighton, Leeds, Belfast and the Isle of Wight.

We lit up our Home Office in Leeds city centre to show our support for Pride, and colleagues from the office, as well as our stores in the city, were at Leeds Pride this weekend.

Dozens of colleagues from our stores in North West England and North Wales teamed up at Liverpool Pride last weekend.

Jo Scott from our Pwllheli store said: "I'm so proud to support Pride and to represent North Wales at these events to celebrate diversity.

"I'm especially am proud of the support that we as Asda colleagues provided at Liverpool Pride. There was a fantastic turnout, with so many of us joining in on this brilliant event."

Colleagues from our stores in Arnold, West Bridgford, Long Eaton, Langley Mill, Boston and Newark helped at Nottingham Pride.

Jon Coutts-Walker, the community champion at our Long Eaton store, said: "What a fantastic day we all had at Nottingham Pride with colleagues from the region and surrounding area.

"We most certainly made our presence known with lots of whistleblowing and huge banners. Nottingham Pride might not be one of the biggest Pride events going but it shows what a wonderful inclusive city we have and how our Asda stores around the region are a big part of that ethos."

Elizabeth Arbuckle from our Toryglen store joined colleagues at Glasgow Pride (pictured above). She said: "What a great day walking with my colleagues in the Glasgow Pride parade. The weather was fantastic and the streets were lined with people from start till the finish."

Karen Fulton, the community champion at our Ayr store, was also at Glasgow Pride and said: "I had a fantastic day at Glasgow Pride. Everyone that took part, no matter where or what group they were supporting, just laughed, sang, blew whistles and totally had a ball. Not everyone gets to meet the Queen!
