Welcome to the Green Room page for
It's Armed Forces week and here at Asda Perth I took time this week to speak to residents of North Inch House and service users of the New Rannoch Centre to find out what the historic 6th Annual Armed Forces Day meant to them. Generations of people in our area have the most amazing stories to contribute and today at Asda we wanted to continue to give back. From now until Mid November you can make donations into our SOS appeal trolley. Your donations will be used to support local people who are serving our country across seas. We will run this in conjunction with all of our other fundraising and donation activities. To date £183.00 of goods have already been distributed from your gifts into Asda Perth's trolley in the last two months! Here are just some of the local fundraisers who are joining people across Perthshire in marking this special day and week.
Asda Perth were invited to attend Tulloch Net's Community Fayre on Saturday 14th June at Tulloch Primary School. We combined our Healthy Eating in Schools with our remaining Open Farm Sunday Goodies. It was a great day and we are looking forward to the next one.
On the 29th May we were visited by two groups of primary pupils from near by RDM in Scone. Here is our second group - they we given these pancakes at the end of their tour, having watched them being made fresh in our Bakery Department. They had been learning about the journey of food in class.
As part of the Cash for Kids fundraising our store has been doing, we teamed up with Thompson's. The generously donated a years supply of tea which we raffled off to our customers and colleagues. CPM Colleague Karen was our lucky First Prize winner. No content with helping to raise fund for this cause, she also donated part of her winning to Support Our Soldiers. Here is local SOS Coordinator and Canteen Colleague Anji accepting the donation on the charities behalf. Karen then went on toe donate the majority of her winnings to local care homes and several elderly residents. You are a star Karen - Nice Job!

Big Lunch 2014 - Here are some of the people who joined us in celebrating bringing our community together. We cant wait to see who we can team up with next year!
As part of the Big Lunch celebrations on 1st June, our local Fire Service promoted in Home Safety - here is their stall. Attending members of our community were encouraged to sign up to a free home fire safety check. This proved to be very popular and I could not resist arranging a visit from our local firemen to my house!
