Asda Oadby supports Oadby Food Bank The oadby food bank has been recently opened to the locals. It is such a fantastic initiative, where the locals have identified a need in the community and are helping to the best of their ability. It is all run by volunteers living locally. We at Asda wish them all the best with their cause. Good luck, well done!
Asda Oadby supports First Step: First Step is an organisation run for male survivors and their supporters. They provide free confidential services to male survivors of sexual abuse and their supporters living in the city of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to enable survivors to make the “first step” towards feeling less isolated through increased personal power to makes choices. We at Asda Oadby are very pleased to be able to provide them with £300. We wish them well with their cause and hope their efforts transform many lives.
On Sunday 6th July CLC Tricia (Thurmaston) and CLC Sebrina (Oadby) helped and supported the Red Tractor Family Farm Day held in aid of 13th Century village church in Barkby, Leicestershire! The church is over 800 years old so needs to be regularly maintained so the the Kirk family invited the whole local community together to try and raise funds so vital building work can be done. It was a proper old-fashioned day on the farm with the chance try out being a farmer, check out some vintage farm vehicles and eat some yummy Red Tractor food! There were also an educational area to learn about the story of our food – from farm to table. Plus a chance to see many animals – from Iris the Shorthorn Cow to the newly-hatched (and super fluffy) turkeys! And of course, a trailer that took visitors around the farm. A fun filled day and to top it up lovely weather.
On Thursday 3rd July we had the Brownies from St.Peter's visit the store to have a store tour and make bread. It was a lot of fun and the girls enjoyed themselves during the activities.
