Chilled colleague Luke Westward dressed up as Pudsey and went round the children's ward at Walsall Manor hospital. Pudsey even visited the children's out patients department. Pudsey was continually stopped by hospital staff and patients and had many photo's taken of him. All the children on the children's ward gave Pudsey a hug and all the medical staff wanted a group photo taken with him.
During our Tickled Pink sponsored walk, the wonderful volunteers from Walsall Arboretum User group opened up the Woodlands learning gardens so the children taking part in the walk could have a playful adventure while learning about wildlife and nature at the same time.
The start of St Matthews Tickled Pink sponsored walk was started and supported by The Mayor of Walsall and Walsall's official town crier. The weather turned out beautiful following several days of rain and a great day was had by everyone.
After 2 very successful litter picks, St Matthews Walsall did a 3rd litter pick to support Walsall Police Station's open day. The day was officially opened by the Mayor of Walsall who then happily picked up some litter grabs to show his support for our efforts. The Mayor is pictured here with produce colleague Dan Beech. The whole day was a great success.
Supporting the LGBT community in Walsall, organisers of Walsall Pride which falls on the 24th August show Asda's support at the Pride Gala Ball.
Sports Leaders from Phoenix Collegiate organised an Asda active event for over 200 children from 4 local schools. The activity was organised in the main sports hall so that it could go ahead whatever the weather. The children had a lot of fun throughout the day and as it was indoors, the noise level went through the roof as each school cheered on its competitors.
