Millbrook House

Getting to the shops can be a bit of a struggle for some of the residents of Millbrook House care home in Soham, Cambridgeshire – so we decided to bring our store to them!

We’ve just opened our very first ‘mini Asda’ store in the residential home – and it’s already helping make life a bit easier for residents.

After the ribbon was cut by tenants Fred Mitchell, 93, and Ida Gilbey, also 93, the doors to our smallest store are open every Tuesday and Friday from 10am until noon, allowing the residents to get all their essentials without having to travel.
