March to May's Chosen by you... Given By Us winner Christ the King Primary School were delighted to be the recipients of the £500 award, giving them an additional reason to celebrate in the school's 50th Anniversary Year. Headteacher Mr Doogan happily accepted the cheque on behalf of the school.
Myself and Ian from Arrowe park had a fantastic day at Grove Street Primary School Queen's 90th Birthday Celebration. The children looked fabulous in their handmade crown and Red, White & Blue clothing.
A great day was had by the 400 visitors of Port Sunlight River Park this Bank holiday during their second annual Easter event. It was an egg-travaganza filled with crafts, egg hunts, an Easter trail puzzle packed with clues and refreshments... solidly establishing this newly created park as a great place to visit. Well done Friends of Port Sunlight River Park. It was a privilege once again to join the fun.
Ian Grant and myself spent two great mornings at Poulton Lancelyn Primary with Year 2 talking about and tasting breads from around the world, paying particular attention to the varied textures and density due to different cooking methods. We then went on to produce our own bread dough with our mess free bread-in-bag activity. To find out more about our bread-in-bag recipe www.asdagoodliving.co.uk/food/recipes
Congratulations to Claire House Children's Hospice for winning the November/December Chosen by You... Given By Us (green token scheme), receiving a £200 cheque. Runners up Clatterbridge Cancer Centre and Wirral Hospice St John's received a £50 cheque. There were smiles all round.
Myself and Ian from Asda Arrowe Park shared the Change 4 Life sugar swap message in store and at local schools. We also explained how the new sugar app worked with examples of good and bad packed lunches. Many people were more than a little shocked at the hidden sugar content of items they ate daily.
It was a fantastic day at Ferries Family Group Christmas Gingerbread Event thanks to the Asda Foundation Christmas Grant. While I spent the day helping in the crèche so parents could come together with others in the community, Ian Grant & Joanne Winterton were stirring up a storm in a cloud of icing sugar and supervised the construction of some serious gingerbread masterpieces. Thankfully although I missed helping with the gingerbread fun, I did manage to snag a broken piece and it was delicious......
Crafts and Carols at Port Sunlight River Park one day. BBQ, face painting, crafts and wildlife at Dibbinsdale Nature Reserve Winter Warmer the next. It's been such a joy to see the local community supporting and enjoying these festive events.
