Celebrations all round at ASDA
Asda Toryglen staff were lunching out recently.
The store was the venue for a special celebration lunch, to mark Asda’s 50 years in business and two years of Asda working with Food Train Glasgow, the Scottish charity that helps older people who struggle with their grocery shopping.
The charity was having a birthday celebration of its own, marking 20 years.
Community Life Champion at Asda Toryglen, Elizabeth Arbuckle, enjoyed hosting the day.
She said: “We are thrilled to have hosted this lunch to celebrate both of these important milestones.
“It was a fantastic opportunity to bring the local community together and everyone really enjoyed the festivities.”
There were members of staff, customers and local community figures in attendance for the lunch.
A selection of hot foods and refreshing drinks were provided for everyone to enjoy, and Glasgow’s deputy Provost Bailie Josephine Docherty and Local Glasgow City Councillor James Scanlon were in attendance too.
Chris Curtis, from Food Train Glasgow, said: “Everyone was delighted to meet and mingle with new people and enjoy some good food while we were at it.
“We are extremely grateful for Asda Toryglen’s support over the past two years and excited for what the future holds.”
Asda’s Community Life programme aims to support projects in their community which promote better health for local families and better life prospects for young people.
