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.

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.”
