Congratulations to Community Life Champion Maxine Green from our Morley store who has received a Point of Light award for her amazing volunteering efforts.

Prime Minister David Cameron with Maxine Green

Prime Minister David Cameron presented her with the award on Friday in a special ceremony in Wetherby. The new awards recognise outstanding achievement by individuals and are awarded daily to someone somewhere in the UK.

“I was really shocked when I got the call!” says Maxine. “I’m truly overwhelmed and honoured to receive this award from the Prime Minister. It’s really humbling when I see the impact my volunteering and fundraising work has in my local community, even if it’s small it makes such a difference.”

The Big Asda Anniversary 2014 took place in June at Doncaster Racecourse, with over 1,400 colleagues celebrating 25, 30, 35 or an amazing 40 years service!

Asda Anniversary

The day started with a drinks reception within the grounds of the racecourse, which was then followed by a five course meal. There was lots of great entertainment – including flash mob dancers, look-a-likes and stilt walkers.

Andy Clarke, President and CEO, and Hayley Tatum, Senior Vice President, People, took turns to congratulate colleagues who had reached their fantastic service milestones, and the 40 year service colleagues posed for a group photo with Andy!
