Jo Johnson from New Parks Adventure Playground popped into our store to collect a donation of goodies for children in our local community. Not only do they provide a safe place for children after school and during the school holidays, but they also feed them as well – sometimes up to 150 kids a week! They do a fantastic job and it's our pleasure to support them.
We were happy to help our local women's refuge Lighthouse Women's Aid with a donation of items – including notebooks for their healthy relationships courses, a selection of household items for their resettlement families, and tinned items for the food packs which are given to the ladies entering the refuge. Our lovely colleague Denise also made a personal donation of gift-packed toiletries and a George duvet set.
The Johnson F'oldies, an elderly group of over 50's situated on the Johnson Fold estate in Bolton, were happy to receive a donation of creative packs from myself and the Asda Burden Park and Asda Farnworth community champions Lorraine and Carolina.
Myself, together with Lorraine and Carolina community champions from the Burnden Park and Farnworth stores, donated art packs for children aged five to 11 years from the Messy Church on the Johnson Fold estate.
Thanks to the generosity of Boston's Commonwealth Games gold medalist boxer Callum Johnson, there's an extra trolley worth £129.08 for us to pass on to Boston Food Bank to add to the recent Cha Cha Slide Challenge donations that have come from across Boston. Thank you Callum.
