Being active is a great way to help you lose weight, but it can also help you to get fitter and feel better about yourself.

Colleagues

This week we’re delighted to introduce our willing case studies as we follow them on their journey to a fitter and healthier 2015. The case studies have been split into three groups:

  • Weight loss – Asda colleagues who want to lose weight
  • Challenge – colleagues who have decided to take on a new challenge this year including participating in the Run for All 10k’s
  • Life events – we will follow a new mum as she embarks on her journey to lose weight, a new dad who wants to get fitter to be able to keep up with his daughter and a colleague who gets married in April and wants to look his best for the big day.

We hope you enjoy following their journey and feel inspired to get active, we wish them well and look forward to hearing how they are getting on over the coming weeks!

In November we were proud to sponsor the Independent’s Rainbow List, a celebration of the top 101 people who make a difference in the LGBT community in Britain. At the launch of the list we were excited to meet Stephanie Hirst who is a new entry after announcing on BBC Radio 5Live that she is transgender.

Stephanie can often be seen on ITV’s Lorraine, along with being spotted in the aisles of her local Asda in Barnsley doing her big shop. She was delighted to see that Asda was supporting The Rainbow List.

Dementia Friends is a campaign started by the Alzheimer’s Society with the aim of making life a little easier for people with dementia by creating a more dementia-friendly society.

Dementia Friends

Anybody can become a Dementia Friend, and we’re keen for Asda colleagues to get involved. It’s just about understanding a bit more about dementia and the small things you can do to help people with the condition – and showing a little bit more patience and understanding.
