South West region colleagues tackle 'Bear Trail' for Tickled Pink

Colleagues from stores across Devon and Somerset teamed up for a fun egg and spoon race on a muddy obstacle course all in aid of Tickled Pink.


The event took place at ‘The Bear Trail’ in Cullompton, Devon, and the colleagues bravely tried to carry the eggs on zip wires, through mud pits and over climbing nets.

They all got colleagues plus family and friends to sponsor them and raised an impressive £860 for Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now.

Jane Entwistle, Community Champion at Asda Newton Abbot, said: "We wanted to do something a bit different alongside all the fantastic activities taking place in each store, and do something that brought us together as a region.

“The teams consisted of colleagues, managers, general store managers and section leaders – coming together, in fancy dress, as one big Asda family to raise money for two fantastic charities.

“The Bear Trail had very kindly given their attraction for free and what a fantastic day we had – everyone loved taking part.

“We would like to say a big thank you to our colleagues and customers across the South West who have been incredibly supportive of our fundraising activities.”

Ben Jordan, owner of the Bear Trail, said: “It was great to see everyone having so much fun – it was a pleasure to host them and I hope that we’ve helped them raise a lot of money for such a great cause.”
