Asda Bromborough and Asda Arrowe Park were very excited this week to have Frank Harrington from male cancer charity ORCHID in store to share his knowledge with customers and colleagues during our two day awareness event. We were also incredibly privilege to have Wirral Mayor and Mayoress taking the time in their busy schedule to visit Asda Bromborough‘s ORCHID awareness event. Mayor, Les Rowlands admitted he’d shamefully learnt more about male cancers in 5 minutes with ORCHID’S Frank Harrington than over many years and it certainly gave him food for thought. DO YOU KNOW? Over 43000 men will be diagnosed with a male-specific cancer this year & Testicular Cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 15-45. If caught at an early stage men can expect a high cure rate with 98% of men disease free at one year.
Father's Day weekend at Asda Bromborough was balloontastic, fundraising for Male Specific Cancer Charity ORCHID. A weekend of balloon swords and flower bracelets raised £247 adding to the 10 day awareness event in the lead up to Father's Day. £450.10 was raised in total. Year to date Asda Bromborough is proud to have £1238.12 for ORCHID @[Community Uploads ](content:1264)
Asda Foundation LOCAL IMPACT FUND awarded 2015 Claire House Cup £480 to help with the cost of putting on the spectacular annual football event and family fun weekend. The Claire House Cup has been running for four years in memory of local football loving and team player Elliot Wild who lost his battle with Leukaemia age 11 in 2011. His mum Jackie threw herself into fundraising for the Claire House Children’s Hospice, who supported her family throughout. This year's event was without about bigger and better than ever with 148 teams participating; a staggering 1400 children playing football for charity and for the love of the game but that’s not where it ends, it truly has become a family day out, spread over a weekend with something for all; bouncy castles, fate games, face painting, hair painting, food, drinks and some much more. Wirral CLC’s were on hand to help where ever needed. The event raised £29120.50 beating last year's total of £15000
Big Lunch at Mayer Park, Bebington - what a brilliant day and great success! Working with Arrowe Park store, The Joseph Mayer Community Partnership, Friends of Mayer park and our local Halifax team we held a day of free fun and entertainment. A stripped back day of picnicking and games of yesteryear - sack races, running races, tug of war to name but a few. Craft tables, face painting and balloon models. Wirral Mayor Les Rowlands also attended early afternoon praising the event as the best he'd been to. As designated balloon model maker for the day I had the unique opportunity to speak to most parents, carers and guardians. Their response to the day was resoundingly positive with many asked when the next event would take place.
Helen-Louise and the community volunteer group at Port Sunlight River Park spent a very wet morning clearing overgrown brush near the riverside opening the great views currently denied to children and wheelchair users. Over the next three weeks we're aiming to clear the remaining few hundred feet of brush, ready for the arrival of Cunards 'Three Queens' ships to the Mersey Monday 25th May, a spectical which is predicted to draw over a million visitors to the banks of the Mersey, both in Wirral and Liverpool
