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

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. It was her job to make sure her Clydesider volunteers were well looked after, to motivate them and make the Games a great experience for everyone involved!

We spoke to Liz about her experience at the Games. She said:

“The highlight of the Games for me was meeting so many people who had travelled from all over the world. I also loved seeing so many people dressed in the colours of the country they were supporting, entertaining them while they waited in line or were en route to the venue. I was known to sing a few wee Scottish songs and get them involved in the chorus.
