On Friday 25th July we held our Field in Trust, The Big Lunch at Castle Batch Playing Field. This year was busier than previous years and nearly 2000 people attended. We put on lots of free activities for the children that ranged from babies to teenagers. I helped with the BBQ and asked for donations for Tickled Pink. This raised £291 for the charity. GSM Jeremy Kinsey also came along and the event was run between WECAN, North Somerset Council and Asda Weston-super-Mare
The Weston Branch of The Alzheimer's Society came along to the store on Monday 21st July to hold a collection. I was so pleased to be able to book them in as the charity is very close to my heart after my dad passed away from the disease.
Movie Mayhem came to Asda Weston on Saturday 19th July. A range of movie characters came to the store to help raise funds for Tickled Pink. Each character held a bucket and we asked for a donation if a photo was taken. We were so pleased to raise £407. A massive Thank You must go to all the customers who gave up their time to help raise money. CLC Rachel Mansfield attended as Princess Fiona from Shrek.
Today I went along to Windwhistle Primary School and made Thank You cards with the kids. It was lovely at the end of the day to be surprised with two cards that the kids had made for me to say Thank You Rachel for helping us make the cards. It was sad to see some of them leave as I had known them since reception.
On Friday 11th I went along to our local Foodbank in Weston-super-Mare and helped them out by volunteering for them. I helped weigh in all the donated items, put them away, make food parcels and fill up. Our Foodbank has been getting busier year on year and it's always a pleasure to be asked to go along and help them out
On Wednesday 9th I went along to Weston Hospicecare and volunteered my community hours out of the store. I was kept busy all day sorting out admin, databases, posters plus a lot more. As a store we have a great connection between them and us.
On Saturday 12th July CLC's from Bristol Patchway, Weston-super-Mare and Highbridge went along to Bristol Pride as part of the Asda LGBT Network, we helped out in the children's area and we had a great day and kept @AsdaLGBT updated throughout the day of pictures that were taken. CLC from Weston took along her daughter Sophie and CLC from Patchway took her daughter Amber along, they both joined in and we all had a fantastic day. Same time, same place again next year!
On Saturday I spent a very busy day at our local Weston Hospice Care. I offered my face painting services and raised lots of money for them, there were lots of different activities taking place, so hopefully over the day they have been able to raise lots of funds for the fantastic charity, that I am pleased to volunteer for each week.
