Tourmakers

We’re gearing up to welcome the Tour de France to the UK by recruiting an army of Asda colleagues and customers.

As an official partner we’ll be recruiting, training and feeding up to 10,000 volunteers known as “Tour Makers”. We’ll also be providing the Tour Maker uniforms.

If you have already pre-registered to be a volunteer for the Tour De France, formal applications to be a volunteer at the Grand Depart on 5th, 6th and 7th July are now open!

The 2014 Grand Depart will begin with two stages in Yorkshire with a lively carnival atmosphere to celebrate the event and get things off to a flying start. It will then move south for a third stage running from Cambridge to London.

For more information and to apply visit www.asda.jobs/tourmakers using the email address that you pre-registered with.

But hurry – the closing date for all applications is Friday 28th February!

We’ve been inundated with requests from kind-hearted customers, colleagues and suppliers who want to help their neighbouring communities. We’ll be holding collections in stores and depots around the UK so that people can personally contribute to the relief operation. The Asda Foundation has committed to making top-up donations to the funds raised locally.

The Asda Foundation has already been working closely with the stores, Community Life Champions and colleagues to offer financial support to local communities: a donation of £2300 has been made to Asda Taunton, which will buy 25 tonnes of straw and feed for cattle and £1,000 has been donated locally in Bridgwater to provide food parcels supporting families in evacuation centres.
