I spent a lovely morning making sure our wonderful community looks its best, deadheading and adding more flowers to one of the many planters you will see dotted around Ellesmere Port. It’s great to take pride in where you live! 🌸🌺🌼
Our store manager Linzi and I were invited along to an event by The Veterans' Breakfast Club as, with Homes for Heroes, they had the opening of their new static home. The holiday home is available to veterans all over the country to stay in for free with their families. It is fully accessible, furnished and even the cupboards are stocked for them. It’s an amazing little get-away for our ex-service heroes. Asda Clacton donated bedding.
I had the pleasure of helping Suffolk Accident Rescue Service by submitting their application for our store's Green Token Giving vote. They managed to win the vote and received a cheque for £500 from the Asda Foundation, which help towards the cost of new equipment and supplies.
It was lovely to meet Carol from Aid Box Community Bristol to give her a donation collected by our Longwell Green store colleagues which included blankets and bedding for Ukrainian refugees living in Bristol.
What generous customers and colleagues we have at Asda Queensferry. Two more full trollies of food were picked up by the guys from Flintshire Foodbank ready to be distributed to people who need a little bit of help.
As "Asda Man" I visited year 1 at St. Mary's School to talk about why eating fruit and veg is so important and to do some fruit tasting with the children. The Kids tried: Avocado, Blueberries, Honeydew Mellon, Passion Fruit, Pineapple, Plums and Sharon Fruit. The children enjoyed the session and loved trying the different fruits.
Myself and Debbie spent two days at St. Pauls RC Primary School in Glenrothes to assist with their health week. We took along some fruit and fresh vegetables for the young people to taste and over two days we helped eight classes from P1 to P7 try different fruits and veg. The young people have a great time! The baby beetroot and pomegranate seeds were very popular!
When the charity Parenting Special Children contacted me to requesting funding, they were too late as our store budget had already been spent, so I shared their application with Tanya, Community Champion at our Lower Earley store. The Lower Earley store supported the application and Parenting Special Children were successful and awarded £1032 from the Asda Foundation.
