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.
