The kittens

These four little kittens, born under a storage container in the car park of Asda Living Lincoln, “would not have survived” without the help of colleagues at the store. Happily all the kittens have new homes to go to after being rescued by colleagues at the Tritton Road store – including George, the only boy cat, who was named after our clothing range!

Time to Test

The health of our colleagues is a top priority – which is why Asda has signed up to the ‘Time to Test’ Campaign to help raise awareness of the importance of attending regular health screening appointments.

As part of this we have updated our Additional Leave policy to remind all colleagues that if you’re not able make appointments outside of working hours, we are committed to offering the flexibility of paid leave and helping to find a way for you to attend health screenings during the working day.

Although ‘Time to Test’ focuses on cervical health for women, we want to send the message out loud and clear to every colleague that all health screenings are a priority and vital to attend.

During the Tickled Pink campaign we encourage our colleagues to consider the importance of breast screenings and taking the time to make and attend an appointment.

Thanks to all colleagues for their continued hard work and commitment in helping us raise money for Tickled Pink over the years!

Tickled Pink

We’ve had loads of great colleague fundraising stories – from skydiving, abseiling, zip wiring and swimming across the Solent, to sponsored silences and our big Tickled Pink bike ride! Asda House colleagues have also been raising money for Tickled Pink with their Big Brunch meeting.

Community Life Champions are getting behind this year’s campaign in store with Tickled Pink “At the Seaside” fundraising – including Guess the name of the dolphin, Treasure Hunt, Candy Grabber and Guess the number of fish in the jar and other fun games to get customers into the spirit! And don’t forget to look out for collection buckets in store too.
