The kittens

These four little kittens, born under a storage container in the car park of Asda Living Lincoln, “would not have survived” without the help of colleagues at the store. Happily all the kittens have new homes to go to after being rescued by colleagues at the Tritton Road store – including George, the only boy cat, who was named after our clothing range!

Great news if you eat gluten-free – we’re the first supermarket to sign up to Coeliac UK’s Gluten-free Guarantee in all Asda stores in their aim to improve availability of gluten-free food in UK supermarkets.

Chosen by you Free From

One in 100 people in the UK has coeliac disease, which is caused by intolerance to gluten, the symptoms range from mild to severe and can include bloating, nausea, constipation, tiredness, weight loss, skin problems and depression.

Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, have asked supermarkets to stock eight core items of gluten-free food across all their stores – making it easier for people with coeliac disease to manage their diet without having to shop around. Every single Asda – including our smaller stores – will be stocking these eight items including white bread, pasta, cereal, flour and cereal bars.

We’ve expanded our Chosen by you Free From range of gluten, wheat and dairy free options. This year we welcomed some delicious new additions to the range – including Shortbread, Belgian Chocolate Rocky Road, Chocolate Muffins, Cheese Crackers, Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread and an amazing range of cooking sauces!

At Asda Harpurhey we were all upset to hear about the recent fire at the nearby Manchester Dogs Home. Colleagues donated blankets and towels shortly after the fire broke out to try to help the surviving dogs.

All our Manchester stores are collecting at checkouts for the Dogs Home following the fire and colleagues at Harpurhey are organising a bag pack this weekend to raise money.

Lee Haken, store manager at Asda Harpurhey, said: “The store and the whole community are really upset by the events. Obviously we wanted to do as much as we could to help and we’ll continue to work with the dogs’ home to offer them the support they need.”
