Ambleside

This season there are six trends. Ambleside takes inspiration from the Lake District for a beautiful rustic charm; Havana is hot with print and colour; Akira is a stunning minimalist collection with clean lines and graphics; Classic Grey offers a modern take on regal style; Botanical Rhapsody combines texture with beautiful lush green paints; and Twisted Vintage is full of quirky and intricate design details. Find out more about the ranges here.

Customers have been taking to social media to share photos of items they’ve bought from the new collections, with the rabbits from the Ambleside collection proving a particular favourite.

Happy 80th birthday to our wonderful Nuneaton checkout colleague Ennis Claridge.

Ennis and Stewart

She’s worked at the store since it opened 30 years ago and says “I never think about retiring – I’ m happy here.” Colleagues laid on a surprise party for her, and customers including Stewart, pictured above, wished her many happy returns.

Colleagues decorated her checkout for the big day, and held a special afternoon tea for her birthday in the colleagues canteen – where they presented her with flowers and a cake.

We’re proud to be backing a series of initiatives in Leeds which provide help and support for people with mental health issues.

Asda Foundation has donated £380,000 to Leeds Community Foundation’s Leeds Fund to distribute to groups running innovative mental health projects in the city.

The Leeds Fund supported six initiatives at the end of last year, but didn’t have the funding it needed to support another 16 mental health community projects that had been shortlisted. The donation from the Asda Foundation will now help all these additional schemes.

Happy eighth birthday to little Felicity, who was all smiles when her big sister Charlotte found our dairy free party cake at Asda Scunthorpe!

Lolli with her dairy free cake from Asda

Felicity was diagnosed as lactose intolerant a few years ago and since then she’s been very vigilant in checking ingredients and not accepting any foods until she’s sure it’s dairy free.

Felicity’s big sister, Charlotte, had looked the cake up online to see if it existed, then took a trip to our store in Scunthorpe with her mum to track one down. When she found it in store she was so pleased that she ended up jumping up and down in excitement!
