On Tuesday 13th May leading figures from business gathered to celebrate the successful women working in the UK transport and logistics industry at the 2014 FTA Everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards.

Everywoman Awards

Three of our colleagues were nominated and singled out from an outstanding shortlist by a panel of expert industry judges as being the best in their field.

Maryam Cassidy, Continuous Improvement Manager from Skelmersdale, was a finalist for the Rising Star of the Year for excelling in her career. Corinne Murphy, Senior Manager Fleet Compliance at our Central depot, was nominated for the Innovation and Sustainability Award. And Amy Goddard, Department Manager at Lutterworth ADC, was up for the Warehousing Award for excelling in her role.

Although we didn’t walk away with an award it was a fantastic achievement to be amongst the finalists. Jill Clark, Senior Director, People – Asda Logistics Services, commented that the finalists should be very proud of their achievements and to be one of the 25 final nominations in the seven categories is a display of the talent they have. Well done ladies!

Allergy Clinic

Asda Pharmacy is launching an Allergy Clinic. We’ve trained all of our pharmacists to answer questions about your allergy symptoms and identify how best to treat them. The Pharmacist will assess the severity of your symptoms and inform you of the best solution to suit your needs.

Hay Fever affects one in five adults in the UK and often allergy sufferers will mistake an allergic reaction for a “summer cold”. If you suffer from Hay Fever or you think you are undiagnosed come and speak to your Asda pharmacist and get the help you need to enjoy the summer.

The service is free so there’s no need to suffer in silence, come and get checked out!
