Living Glasgow Fort came to the rescue of a local school's Nativity this week. Oakwood Primary School in Easterhouse had worked hard to raise funds to buy their costumes with the primary one class having a toy sale. However they ran out of money with six costumes short. Teacher Mrs Canville called the store to ask Community Champion Christine if the store could offer a discount on the last of the required sheep and donkey outfits. Always happy to help the store donated the costumes! Christine went along to the school during a rehearsal to hand over the costumes and bagged herself an invite along to the show.
Colleagues at Asda Living Glasgow Fort are feeling very proud right now. Community Life Champion Christine has just been invited for tea at the House Of Commons. The trip is a reward for the store being the top fundraising store in the Living Format. Thanks to all colleagues and customers at the store a massive £3,700 was raised for the Tickled Pink campaign.
Section Leaders at Asda Living Glasgow, Christine and James went Sober in October to raise money for local charities and good causes. The pair raised £270 which will be used towards funding the stores Community Life Work. Here they are at a local charities fancy dress party having their first drink. The charity event took place on the 2nd of November and was in aid of local Children's Charity, Brighter East End.
When Asda Living Glasgow's Community Life Champion, Christine received a letter from Sister Susan Martin from Glasgow Royal Infirmary she immediately wanted to help. Susan had asked the store if there was any chance that they could donate a tree to wards 7 & 16 after their tree had been damaged last year. The store was Happy to Help and Christine went along to deliver the pop up tree to Susan and the other delighted staff members.
Living Glasgow Forts Community Life Champion, Christine Visited a local Woman's Guild this week to tell them all about the work she does in her role. All though the ladies of the Guild knew about the "Green Token Board" they were unaware of all the other work Asdaccolleagues were doing in local communities. Christine was also able to tell them about the money we help raise for local charities, good causes and National Charity Tickled Pink. The Picture shows Christine with Shirley and Janice from the Guild standing along side some of the photos Christine took along with her.
