Welcome to the Green Room page for
Community Life Champion, Christine, from Glasgow Fort Living went back to school this Month..... just to finish the Bread topic though. The Primary 7 and Primary 5 pupils of St Benedicts Primary in Easterhouse really enjoyed making the Bread in a Bag. After putting it all together in school the children went home happily to bake it.
I was a very lucky Community Life Champion this week when Asda Living Glasgow Fort won Top Fundraiser for Tickled Pink for the 3rd year in a row, in the Living format. The prize was a trip to London to see The Lion King. As well as the show all of the winning Community Champions got treated to a lovely lunch and some Tickled Pink goodies and of course our award to take back to the store. So thanks again to all of the very generous customers and colleagues at the store. Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign are very very grateful.
The Happy Club was the lucky winner of Asda Living Glasgow Forts CBYGBU vote for September/October. They will receive a cheque for £200 with both runners up getting £50.
Cathy Brady was the lucky winner of Glasgow Fort Living's 'guess the name of the seal' competition. The competition was part of the store's fundraising efforts for Asda's Tickled Pink charity. During October the store's generous customers and colleagues raised an amazing £1,000. This brings the total for the year to just short of £3,000. A big thank you to all who donated.
Asda Living Glasgow Forts long serving colleagues celebrated with all of the other retailers at the Glasgow Fort this week when the park celebrated 10 years of business. A great evening of celebration was topped of for the Asda Colleagues when they were awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award for the work they have done in the local Community and the money raised for local charities.
