Children in Need

Celebrities Rylan Clark, Tamara Ecclestone, Zoe Hardman and pop princess Amelia Lily joined forces for the pyjama party of the year to show their support for Asda’s BBC Children in Need campaign – and model the official George onesies and pyjamas with Pudsey bear!

Rylan and Tamara

We’re BBC Children in Need’s fundraising partner for the 14th year running. To date Asda has raised over £10 million for the charity – which has helped to change the lives of a significant amount of children across the UK.

The stars wore our cosy range of onesies, pyjamas and t-shirts to show people how to throw a pyjama party in style and encouraging everyone to get involved and do their bit to support disadvantaged children across the UK. The George t-shirts start from just £6 – with a donation from each sale going straight to BBC Children in Need.

To help ensure you and your children get the vitamins you need, we’re giving away free Vitamin D chewable tablets in all Asda Pharmacies.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is essential to allow absorption of calcium into the body – we naturally get this from sunlight, but there are many people in the UK who do not get as much sunlight as they need, especially over the winter months.

A daily dose is recommended for children between six months and five years of age to prevent Vitamin D deficiency – and associated diseases such as rickets – throughout their development. A supplement of Vitamin D is also recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as they need more, and the elderly whose skin make less Vitamin D.

The one month (30 tablets) pack will be available in each of our 225 Asda pharmacies nationwide. Specially formulated for children over three years, the chewable tablets come in a great-tasting raspberry flavour.

Visit your local Asda Pharmacy to find out more. For more information about the benefits of taking Vitamin D speak to your Asda pharmacist.

One pack per customer. Subject to availability.

Angela Lingard

At the age of 92 Angela Lingard has just done her first ever online shop – and is absolutely thrilled with the service!

Angela, who lives in a sheltered bungalow in Macclesfield, is housebound and until now has had to rely on relatives to do her shopping for her. Now she can choose her own shopping in the comfort of her own home.

“It’s just first class” she said. "I like the choice and I’ve found Asda is very good value. The pictures come up on screen so you can see what you’re buying.

“One of the frozen meals that Asda does is absolutely beautiful – Chicken in Wine for £2. It really is delicious. I’ve found Asda is very good value.”
