We caught up with a couple of colleagues to share a bit of insight into the programme – including what they enjoyed most, what skills they gained, and how they felt it could benefit their career in the future.

We know that Asda mums could hold the key to the General Election – and so do the party leaders. With one month to go 80% of Asda mums plan to vote but many of them are as yet undecided who to vote for.

We’ve invited the party leaders to record special video messages to Asda mums to help them make their choice on May 7th. Watch the first three video messages below – we’ll be adding more to the Mumdex section over the coming weeks as we get them.

Prime Minister Rt. Hon. David Cameron

Deputy Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Nick Clegg

Leader of the Opposition Rt. Hon. Ed Miliband

If you love making cakes, then here’s your chance to show off your creative talents. To help celebrate Asda’s 50th anniversary, we’re inviting colleagues to design a cake that will feature on the cover of Asda Magazine.

Cakes

The Asda Mag will look back over the last 50 years, to tie in with Asda’s 50th Birthday, so we’re tapping into the themes of nostalgia and celebration, as well as celebrating the great British seaside, so we’d love to see cake designs with these in mind!

Upload a photo or drawing of your cake design with a short description (up to 50 words) to be in with a chance. The Asda Magazine team will pick their favourite design – which will feature on the July/August issue cover.
