Asda Active

Our Asda Community Champions will be busy helping schools and clubs to get children to be more active this summer.

Asda Active

They’ll be supporting sports days with their local schools and community groups, as well as providing children, teachers, group leaders and parents with some great ideas for fun games they can all get involved with.
