Our Community Life Champion at Asda Toryglen, Liz Arbuckle, played a key role at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games as a volunteer team leader.
Liz was positioned across the road from our Toryglen superstore, Hampden Park for the athletics, Strathclyde Park for the triathlon and Cathkin Braes for the mountain bike racing.
