Green Room LGBT

So far this year we have attended Pride events across the country – Nottingham, Norwich, Glasgow, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Bristol, North Wales, and we also sponsored Pride in London for the first time.

Pride event

August sees Leeds Pride, which we are proud to be sponsoring for the third year running, and we still have Cardiff and Manchester pride to come.

If you’ve been involved in a local Pride event and haven’t shouted about it yet then now is your chance! Please share your photos on the Green Room – or you can tweet your pictures to @AsdaLGBT.

We hope you’ve had a fantastic Summer of Pride so far and we want to thank you all for your support and the fantastic effort you have all put into your events. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Back to School Super Science Lab

In the run up to the school term we’ve got some fun activities in selected stores to make shopping for school uniform easier. Look out for our Back to School Super Science Lab in our Scotland stores on 24th and 31st July and stores in England and Wales on 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd August. See which stores are taking part here.

Our Back to School colleagues will be on hand to demonstrate the benefits of George schoolwear – including our Teflon-coated clothing which repels spills and releases stains easily. The kids can dress up in lab coats and goggles, and have fun testing our Teflon-coated trousers and skirts for themselves in the Super Science Lab – then take away a ‘Super Science Lab’ certificate to showcase at home!

You can check out our great range of school wear now in store or online at George.com.

Photo upload: We’d love to see how the activity performs in your store. Upload your photos to the Green Room and tell us how it went!

Over the past few weeks we’ve been sharing stories about the Tour de France and the work of our fabulous Asda Tour Makers, and many of our stores have also got involved in their own activities.

Colleagues from Asda’s ISD Team helped out at Hannah House Children’s Hospice this June after the service was chosen for their 2014 volunteering challenge. The Asda team also raised £175 with the support of the Asda Community Foundation to buy materials, plants and fun garden decorations.

Colleagues

Over two days, 20 colleagues were welcomed at Hannah House, which offers short break care for children with complex care needs. The colleagues helped to tidy up the garden so it would be ready for the children to use over the summer. They got stuck in with power washing the patio, re-felting the shed roof, painting fences, sprucing up the decking and potting flowers, fruit and vegetable plants.

Jo Dodd, manager at Hannah House, said: “We were delighted to find out Asda had chosen Hannah House as somewhere they would like to come and volunteer. It has been lovely having the Asda Colleagues here and we’ve been very lucky with the weather too. We’re looking forward to enjoying the outdoor space even more now.”

Huge thanks from the team, children and families to everyone that helped out.
