Asda Cakes

We love this brilliant Nightmare Before Christmas cake design that was created by Kirsty Pointon using an Asda three-tier cake!

Kirsty works part time as a Customer Service Colleague at our West Swindon store and was trained as a chef but left the world of kitchens behind after having her second child.

After a busy week Kirsty realised she didn’t have time to make her own cake for her husband Andrew’s 40th birthday so she decided to pick one up from Asda instead. Her design idea was inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas as her husband and daughters are big fans of the movie.

We’ve got a wonderful army of Asda elves out and about this Christmas spreading festive cheer and arranging special surprises for people in the local community.

Asda community elves

The #becauseitschristmas elves are better known throughout the rest of the year as our Community Life Champions. Every Asda store has one, and they play an active role in their local community, working with schools, charities and other good causes.

Throughout December you’ll see them in their “Happy to Elf” uniforms bringing a bit of festive magic to people who deserve some extra special Christmas cheer.

They’ll be organising get-togethers for senior citizens and people who live on their own in the local community; they’ll be throwing Christmas parties for groups who just don’t have the money to fund celebrations; and they’ll be saying thank you to some of the amazing people who give up their time to volunteer for local good causes.
