A song written for an Asda colleague and his wife who tried for six years to have a baby has now been picked up by a national infertility charity.

Michael Taylorson wrote the song for his friends Nathan and Shelley Dring to show his support when they had almost given up hope of ever having children. Now the song “Just Running Late” is available to download with some of the proceeds going to the UK Infertility Network.

Christmas elves

The next time you’re shopping at Asda don’t be surprised if you see an elf or two! Our colleagues have been getting into the Christmas spirit – and just like elves they’re always happy to help.

This happy bunch of elves (above) are all Community Life colleagues who were preparing to sing at the Totton parade. The colleagues were representing stores from the South coast including Bournemouth, Eastleigh and Havant.

All our stores have a Community Life colleague who is helping to spread a few smiles in their local community – as well as in store – this Christmas. Here’s what some of them have been up to.
