At the weekend we saw another fantastic turnout at Pride events in Manchester, Walsall and Cornwall taking our Summer of Pride total so far this year to 23 events, with another seven planned between now and October.


As the Senior Director for Talent, Resourcing and Diversity and Inclusion, it is overwhleming to see how our colleagues have driven our Summer of Pride in such a big way this year. There is a saying that ‘Diversity is being invited to the party, Inclusion is being asked to dance’. And boy have you danced!

It has been amazing to see the pictures here on the Green Room and on the @AsdaLGBT Twitter page. Your passion and commitment cannot be mistaken and you have shown our colleagues and customers how important our LGBT community really is to us.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved this year, and for those of you whose Pride celebrations are yet to come, I hope you have a blast. Now we just need to think about how we can top this next year!

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. 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.
