Early October North Wales & Liverpool region of Asda General Store Managers were out in force at Shorefields, Wirral litter picking on the local common and wooded cycle/footpath as part of Asda commitment to our communities. Wirral Mayor Les Rowlands also popped along to lend his support. During 2 hours of litter picking approximately 30 bags of rubbish, a large flat screen TV & a child's bicycle were cleared from the area.
First Sunday in Oct Asda Bromborough hosted the second Wirral Tri-store Tickled Pink fundraisers (Bromborough, Arrowe Park and Liscard). The event was a tremendous success, thanks to the kind support and generosity our our fabulous customers. We raised £438.35 THANK YOU...
Asda Bromborough has brought a personal touch to this year's Tickled Pink Campaign with their message tree. Over the past few week we have watched it blossom in pink leaves with truly inspiring notes.
Asda Bromborough kicked of this year's Tickled Pink Campaign raising awareness about Breast Cancer and sharing information on what 44 millions pounds worth of donations has helped Tickled Pink achieve, such as being a founding partner for the UK's first breast tissue bank and helping increase the number of headstrong outlets for Breast Cancer Care.
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.

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.
