Congratulations to colleague Jeff Drayton from Asda Lowestoft who made it to the semi-final of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent series! The 73-year-old entertained the judges in his semi-final performance with a magic act which involved a home-made rocket ship and a trip to Mars.

Jeff (pictured above, centre, with colleagues at the store) has worked as a handyman at Asda Lowestoft since the store opened nearly ten years ago. He is well known as a local entertainer, and if you shop at Asda Lowestoft you may have seen him making balloon sculptures for children in the foyer in return for donations for Tickled Pink.

The handyman received a standing ovation from David Walliams who said “I would love to see you in the finals!” after his fantastic performance.

We’re helping our colleagues and customers celebrate Ramadan and Eid in some of our Asda stores.

Ramadan Ramadan, starting on Thursday 18th June this year, is the month that Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. It’s then followed by Eid – a time of celebration, socialising and festive meals when the fast is broken.

In some of our stores we have a Ramadan seasonal aisle which showcases additional lines and some great offers on our products, from rice, flour and spices, to drinks and chocolate treats.

Our Community Life Champions will be carrying out activities in store and with their local Mosques.

Why not upload some photos of any activity happening in your store to mark this period?
