Asda Blackburn celebrates Asda's 50th Anniversary I had a fantastic opportunity to have two young work experience colleagues Saber Uddin and Caolan Mullooly from the Blackburn College, who have never had the opportunity to carry out a fun activity/event. At the beginning both these we're so shy and reserved,but as time went on their confidence soared, they engaged with young children and their parents assisting with the preparation,for children to decorate their own cakes for their loved ones i.e. mum /dad,grandmother/grandfather etc. It started off very quiet and then it escalated due to it's popularity and demand. The children were also given balloons and stickers. The children and parents/grandparents thought this was a fantastic idea and were pleased to see Asda working with it's customers and community with this celebration Hey Lord help us for tomorrow as we will be contributing with various planned activities and events. Thanks to all that participated with the celebration Pictured left to right are Jodine with Daughter Madison and Martin Sweeney.
Newfield School invited Tracy Wood and myself to attend their annual celebration of achievement assembly. We have had a few pupils from this school who have carried work experience. Alex 3rd from the left is one of them. The pupils also sang "Hallelujah" and "It's all about the money", remembering those fellow students that had passed away Alex enjoyed her time at the store, so much that she would home in on me and want a picture taking. Well done Alex and congratulation on your birthday too, and thanks for the pose.

Ivy St Community Centre held the Big Lunch at the centre, with their luncheon club service users. I took a variety of Tickled Pink materials including many bunny ears, wigs etc for them all to wear. Non left for me to wear only my beloved pink tie, which they all loved!!!. The proceeds from the lunch and raffle raised an amazing sum of £70.30. Many thanks to all the staff and management who made the lunch and help raise the monies,
This is a picture from the Big Lunch and it was organised by Rachel Gilkes (Chutney For Change), Claire Tymon (Blackburn with Darwen Council). In support were Asda, Halifax PLC, Police Cadets and various other organisations. There were several stalls, music, even a few singers to liven up the day. The weather started bit sunny, hazy, and windy, but this didn't dampen the lunch. A surprise visitor attended and he was just passing by with his friend. The newly elected leader Councillor Mohammed Khan (rear 2nd row and 3rd from the right) couldn't let this opportunity pass by. Well done all and thanks for the support!
