Local school, Oakwood Primary in Easterhouse, called Community Life Champion Christine from Glasgow Fort Living this week for help in getting Easter Eggs for the school's 250 pupils. The school weren't looking for free eggs just trying to locate enough for all of the children. Having managed to get enough together CLC Christine and Store Manager Steven delivered the eggs to the school. The store were able to donate some of the eggs so saved the school some money too. The picture shows SM Steven handing over the eggs to Sandra who works in the school office and had contacted the store.
Asda Living Glasgow Fort drew their Mother's Day Raffle on Saturday just in time for the lucky winner to collect it in time for the big day. All money raised in the raffle went towards our Tickled Pink campaign. All our Mother's Day fundraising came to a total of £655.
Here are the lucky winners of Glasgow Fort Livings World Book Day competition enjoying some juice and their prizes. As well as getting to choose a book from the store the winners also got some stickers and some sweets.
During world book week Community Life Champion, Christine from Glasgow Fort Living was out and about at 3 local primary schools.

For the lower school it was colouring competitions and for the upper schools a writing competition. All of the lucky winners from Oakwood Primary, St Benedict's Primary and Avenue End Primary came into the store to collect their prize.
It's that time of year again when Asda Living Glasgow Fort start their fundraising for Asda's Tickled Pink campaign. To kick off we had a TP tombola and Mothers Day raffle. The picture shows colleague manning the tombola. It was a great success and as usual our colleagues and customers were very generous and we raised a fantastic £655.
When local Nursery School Beechwood in Easterhouse contacted Community Life Champion Christine from Glasgow Fort Living, looking for help to get the 90 pre school children an Easter egg, the store wanted to do all they could to help. Not able to donate the 90 eggs they got their thinking caps on and came up with an alternative option. Christine contacted the nursery and suggested the store could perhaps donate one of Asda's giant gnomes which the nursery could raffle, guess his birthday or guess a name. The nursery were delighted with that and came along to pick up the gnome. Hopefully the friends and parents of the nursery will dig deep and all the children will get their Easter eggs.
During world book week Glasgow Forts Community Life Champion, also visited St Benedict's primary school in Easterhouse. Here 2 of the P7 pupils and Christine show some of the world book day books Christine took along.
