Care home residents enjoy day out with carers and Asda colleagues

It’s smiles all round outside Asda Doncaster as residents from a local care home head off for a Lakeside picnic trip.

Residents with carers and colleagues

The pensioners from Oaklands Care Home raised £500 at the store before going on their trip. The money will go towards other social activities in future.

Asda Doncaster’s Community Champion Carolyn Halls regularly volunteers at the care home.

She said: "It was an absolutely marvellous day and even the weather behaved itself!

“It was wonderful to chat to residents and staff, and everyone really enjoyed it.”

Claire Simpson, Home Administrator at Oaklands, said: “It was a brilliant day and the residents loved it. Carolyn was great – really helpful.”
