In Friday 21st February, Asda Longwell Green held a tombola to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Asda Longwell Green has joined forces with the Matthew Tree Project, which has opened their new food store in Cadbury Heath. Community Champion Richard Hattersley, pictured with the collection trolley, spoke of the partnership saying, 'the Matthew Tree Project is doing incredible things for people in our community. We are proud to be an official collection point for this cause.'
Avon Fire and Rescue service started their mighty fund raising task at Longwell Green today as part of their treadmill marathon challenge. The firefighters have pledged to raise an astonishing £35,000 for a local young boy with cerebral palsy to have an operation. This is one of many fundraising events they have planned as they prepare for their 6 day marathon challenge in Bristol where they will run the equivalent of Lands end to John O Groats in, as seen in the picture, their fire kit.
Wrapped in their coats and clad in their Santa hats, children from Oldland Preschool stayed up to sing Christmas carols outside the store on Thursday night.
Customers were treated to rousing renditions of classic Christmas songs courtesy of the musical Talents of the Salvation Army. Trumping away on their brass instruments, the Salvation Army raised were raising money for the many great services they provide for the community. Colleagues and customers was certainly in the Christmas spirit during the performances as they sung along To the festive tunes.
Crime and Anti Social behaviour is still a big issue of contention for many people. In efforts to help ease these problems for communities, Asda Longwell Green hosted a joint surgery with the MP for Kingswood, Chris Skidmore and the Crime Commissioner for Avon and Somerset, Sue Mountstevens.
