The Red Bull Soapbox Challenge Retailtainment took place in seven of our Asda stores between June and July 2015.

It brought to life the thrill of the Red Bull Soapbox Race, where customers could experience the race through an interactive simulator shaped like a bath tub and have a photo to take away as a souvenir at the end.

The challenge was a huge success with 780 participants in total across all seven stores and there was great feedback like: “What a fun activity, so different & you get a free photo at the end!” and “This is why I love shopping at Asda, there is always something on.”

And the Red Bull Soapbox Challenge may be coming to a store near you soon so keep an eye out and be sure to share your pictures on the Green Room if you spot it!

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our colleagues for helping us and P&G reach our 2015 target of 100 million days of clean drinking water – and three months earlier than we thought we would do it.

Clean drinking water

This was an ambitious goal which could not have been achieved without our colleagues’ and customers’ continued support. This is such a great achievement and helps us to get one step closer to saving one life every hour by 2020.

Thanks to your support we have made a huge impact on the lives of families across the world, from remote communities in Africa to earthquake disaster relief support in Nepal.
