Checkout colleague Roy Pennington got a surprise visit this week from the Mayor of Worcester who popped into Asda with a VIP invitation.

Roy presented with his invitation at Asda Worcester

Roy, 68, will be one of 160 people attending The People’s Banquet on Friday 10th October at the Guildhall in Worcester by special invitation. The event celebrates local people who go “above and beyond the call of duty” in their work. A retired salesman, Roy first started working at Asda Worcester in January 2012 as a porter and loves his current job at the checkout.

The Mayor of Worcester, Councillor Alan Amos, said: “I invited Roy because he is a ray of sunshine. Whilst we shoppers are rushing around looking miserable, he always finds time to have a cheery word with customers, asking how they are, in a good old-fashioned traditional way. For that brief moment, he brightens up the life of everyone he meets at checkout.”

Share your tips for using up leftover fruit and veg – and the best suggestion will win £50 to spend at Asda!

Leftover bread and butter pudding

Each year in the UK, 7.2 million tonnes of food gets thrown away – more than half of that waste is food that could have been eaten. That’s an average of £50 worth of edible food getting thrown away by every family, every week, every year.

We’re dedicated to cutting down on our own waste through smaller packaging and we’re working hard to reduce surplus stock.
