On Sunday 16 September, colleagues from our Asda's Erith depot, as well as Bexleyheath and Crook Log supermarkets were joined by customers and Bexley councillors in a clean up of Bexleyheath's Town Park and the grounds of Christ Church as part of Asda's Big Litter Pick. Our local contribution was supported by Bexley Council and SERCO who generously provided additional equipment and also collected the bin bags. Erith Depot's Community Life Champion Keji Daodu said: "Since supporting local communities is a priority for Asda, it was fantastic to see colleagues and customers come together to help beautify a local park and we are grateful to all our colleagues and customers who joined us, as well as Bexley Council and SERCO who provided additional support." We hope to have another Big Litter Pick later this year with details being advertised on our Community Life Boards.

The Community Life Champion for Erith Depot, Keji Daodu and the Community Life Champion for Charlton Superstore, Hope Augustus supported The Challenge Network and Victim Support with The Challenge Initiative, 2012. The Challenge Network was founded in 2009 with the mission to connect and inspire people to strengthen their communities. The program aims to create a rite of passage for 16 – 18 year olds; promote social mixing and support community engagement. The Challenge Initiative is a four part summer program that gives young people a chance to gain transferable skills, form new friendships and impact their local area. This year, the young people of The Challenge Initiative chose to work with Victim Support under ‘The Team Challenge’ section of the program; in which the young people spend one day a week, over four weekends, impacting their local community. The 2012 Greenwich participants wanted to be more active in raising awareness, volunteering and fundraising for local good causes. The group of eight 16 – 18 year olds spent their first week learning about Victim Support (a national charity which gives free and confidential help to anyone affected by crime; speaks as a national voice for victims and witnesses and campaigns for change); their second week raising awareness for the charity by handing out leaflets and fundraising at the Charlton store and the remaining two weeks developing a fundraising and awareness campaign for Victim Support that could be implemented across the borough. Community Life Champion Keji Daodu has previously worked with Victim Support on their numerous community and fundraising projects including their very successful first ever ‘Bad Hair Day’ event which took place in February. She was able to support The Challenge Initiative, 2012 from the beginning, bring her skills and knowledge of volunteering, fundraising and community engagement/ involvement to the young people within the program.

On another rare sunny Thursday day (26-07-12), Keji Daodu, Community Life Champion for Erith Depot and Amanda Percival, Colleague and Olympic Torchbearer supported St. Augustine’s Children’s Centre giving out fresh fruit and water to the young children and their families throughout the day. The event was to promote the centre to the community and to give toddlers and young children their first taste of competitive sport. Along with face painting; a crafts table where children made their own Olympic Torches and a football coach; the children and their families also got to enjoy a wonderful show by Theatre Bugs, dedicated to the London Olympics. The highlight of the event was when Erith colleague and Olympic Torchbearer Amanda Percival posed for pictures with adults and children alike, giving members of the community a chance to see the Olympic Torch up close. ASDA Erith Depot and St. Augustine’s Children’s Centre have been working together as part of the new ASDA “Community Life” Initiative; focusing specifically on the pillar “Healthier Life” which aims to help children be more active and eat healthy foods. Supporting the centre’s Fun in the Field Day was a fantastic way to introduce competitive sport and really showed ASDA’s commitment to supporting local communities.
