Thank you and a big well done to all the colleagues who’ve helped make our #cakemyday 50th birthday celebrations such a big success.

We’ve been able to share all the fantastic photos of #cakemyday activity from around the country on social media – and the response from people has been fantastic.

Colleagues have hosted cupcake decorating stalls in store and taken cake out to share with local community groups – and the #cakemyday campervan has been travelling the country presenting Asda Foundation cheques to local good causes and surprising people nominated by our Facebook fans.

Did you know that we’re now offering pet prescriptions at our pharmacies?

All you need to do is ask your vet to write a prescription for the medicines that your pet needs, pop into your Asda Pharmacy and we’ll order and dispense it for you.

Single and repeat prescriptions are available for a full range of prescription medicines*. For repeat prescriptions your vet can usually prescribe repeat prescriptions for up to six months at a time – but you’ll need to take your pet to the vet for a check-up before the next repeat prescription is issued.

Apprenticeships are a great opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’, and gain a nationally recognised qualification.
