DJ Martin Lowes spent a week “living in a box” at Asda Tunstall and raised more than £11,000 for charity thanks to the generosity of Asda customers and colleagues and Signal 1 FM listeners.
The challenge was to live, work, eat and sleep in the glass box with only a 15 minute break every four hours. Martin broadcast his show live from the store every day between 2pm and 7pm on Monday 6th October to Friday 10th October.
Asda Tunstall’s People Services Manager, Jayne Adams, also took part in the challenge, joining Martin in the box for 24 hours. The challenge was all in aid of Douglas Macmillan Hospice and helped the overall “Bring a pound” campaign to top £100,000.
Community Life Champion Bev Capon said: “We have had a full-on week and the event went so well. I am proud of all we achieved.”Read more
