Pensioners from the local day centre had a morning of making pizzas. All the ingredients were donated by ASDA. This is another activity that community colleagues take into schools to teach children about healthy eating. The pizzas are made from bagels with a topping of vegetables. The pizzas were cooked at the centre then wrapped up for the pensioners to take home to eat.
ASDA sent along community colleagues around the country to support the ASDA Active events by providing refreshments for all those taking part, our event was held at the power league centre in Nottingham with over 160 children taking part
ASDA Active sports event was held at the Power League Centre in Nottingham. In this picture are young sports leaders from Bluecoat Academy with community colleagues Angie from Hyson Green store & Sharon from Langley Mill store.
Children from Fig Tree primary school came to store for a store tour and healthy eating activity. One of the best bits that the children enjoyed was the general store manager Lyndsay Newmarch and her management team doing the ASDA chant and getting all the children to join in
Community colleagues from around the region all went to ASDA Derby for a one-day course in sports leadership. We support the ASDA Active events that were happening around the country with schools so it was important that community colleagues understand the way that sports leaders delivered these events. In this picture are community colleagues being put through their paces by Kevin Hatton, sports leaders area manager
community colleague Angie was asked by Radford care group to help take pensioners out on a day trip on the river trent, we boarded the crusader for afternoon tea and of course Angie had to give them all a few games of bingo. By allowing community colleagues out of store to support on trips like these means that more pensioners are able to go and enjoy themselves.
15 pupils from Bluecoat Academy came to store to learn about the different roles that colleagues do instore. They were very surprised to learn that supermarket jobs were not just about stacking shelves and checkouts. The pupils were also given the chance to have a go on the tills, scan shelf edge labels ( SELs ) queue host & customer service desk. At the end of the tour half the pupils said they would definitely consider a job in retail once they had left school.
ASDA community colleagues go into schools to do many activities with children. One of these activities is to make bread in a bag. Community colleague Angie volunteers at a dementia care home and thought it would be great if the residents in the home had a go at making bread. This is a very good activity for the elderly as it helps exercise their finger joints and wrists
