Welcome to the Green Room page for
Went to Pontnewynydd Community Hub today, where I volunteer every Monday serving lunches to a wonderful group of elderly ladies and gents, whom were winners of our Chosen by you... Given by us vote. They were very grateful, and plan on using the money for a day trip in the summer! Thank you Asda Foundation.
Had a great morning supporting a local school Coed Eva Primary which was burned down on New Years Day! The whole community turned out for a 5k fun run to raise vital Funds to get the nursery and infants back into school as they lost everything. Myself and another colleague walked the event ( due to arthritis in my knees!) along with my daughter and a school friend! We've raised quite a bit in store with raffles and bucket collections. Amounts yet to be added up but we're in the £100's which is amazing!! Off to have a well deserved soak now lols.
Today we welcomed in our store Cwmbran Male Choir who sang Christmas songs for all our customers and Henllys Scout Group whom bag packed for them... Thankyou for bringing some Xmas cheer!!
Had an amazing morning today supporting Scope Cwmbrans Open Day!! Lots of community groups there, and a fab Choir from New Inn Primary School, I went along with my Christmas Box and gave out Christmas Goodie Bags to all the children!! Getting in the festive mood!!!
Have spent the day giving out yet more funds for local good causes.. £125 went to the British Legion from a local primary schools ceramic poppies they made and sold in store... and another £133 to a local community group to buy a new bingo machine... Days like these I love my job
I went along to present. Cheque for £250.00 from The Asda Foundation to Pontnewynydd Community Hub for their Xmas Party. They are over the moon and can't wait to party!!
Community coming together to make a difference to others.... Our poppy appeal has reached a local school I attend and they're doing their bit to help!! So proud of all the pupils in this school for contributing!!!
We had a local firefighter Gareth in our store with his team mates collecting money for Velindre. We in Wales support this charity every year in our region and Gareth has been doing challenges all year from bike riding the length of the country to swimming and climbing Welsh mountains. So glad we at Asda Cwmbran could finish off his fundraising in Friday. He raised well over £700 to reach his £15,000 target. Well done everyone and we will see you back next year!!!
