Slimzone range

Our new range of Slimzone frozen ready meals is getting lots of people talking on social media.

We’re getting some great feedback from people who say they’re loving the new products like the “really tasty” Vegetable Arrabbiata, “good and flavoursome” Pork Sausages and “delish” Chicken Tikka Masala.

The meals have been designed to be free to enjoy if you’re following the Slimming World Extra Easy plan.

The products haven’t been endorsed or tested by Slimming World. Whilst Slimming World has said that it cannot currently confirm that the products are Free, it has said: “Looking at the packaging, there is a strong likelihood that the Slimzone meals will be Free or low in Syns.”

Good luck in 2017 to all the grassroots sports clubs our stores support in their local communities!

In the past year the Asda Foundation has given grants totalling more than £163,000 to 180 clubs to buy new kit and equipment. These are just a few of the teams we’ve supported …

The basketball team at Cumbria Wheelchair Sports Club, CWSC Panthers, used the money to buy home and away kits for their first and second teams.

Asda Carlisle Community Champion Niki Iveson went along to watch their first games in their new kit last year and said it must have been a “good luck charm” as both teams won and have been doing well since.
