ASDA Bideford supported a remembrance walk for Linny Horrell, a much loved colleague who sadly died last year. Linny helped transform the lives of 5 people through organ donation. The walk was organised by Linny’s family to remember Linny on what would have been her 50th Birthday weekend. The walk was to promote organ donation and raise funds for Live Life Give Life an organ donation charity. The walk took place on Sunday 14th June from Braunton to Bideford on the Tarka Trail. ASDA supported by giving out fruit and water to the walkers at the start in Braunton and later at Instow.

Held a Big Pink afternoon tea in the colleague canteen for Community Groups and Organisations who we work with including Bideford Bay Creatives, Connect, Learn Devon, North Devon Plus, Northam lodge, Northern Devon Foodbank, Tarka Child Contact Centre, Westward Housing, Wings, and Joyce Comfort from Torrage. The Mayor of Bideford also attended and we gave out certificates in recognition of the work these organisations do for the local community. The groups enjoyed our tea party and took the opportunity to make links with other organisations they don't normally work with. Pictured are (l) Alix from Tarka Child Contact Centre and (r) Ami from Westward Housing who were old school friends that had not seen each other for years!
