Asda appearance proves pretty in pink
Band are on song
It was a case of all that glitters is gold for shoppers at Asda Toryglen recently.
They were treated to an exclusive performance from Castlemilk music group All That Glitters to celebrate the launch of the supermarket’s new Tickled Pink fundraising campaign.
Performing a selection of original songs, the creative writing group wrote “Robin’s Message” especially for the day, which aimed to raise vital funds for Asda’s affiliated charities, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now.
Inspired by the small bird, the song highlights the robin as a symbol of hope with the message not to give up during hard times.
The group, who are part of the Ardenglen Housing Association personal capacity programme The Only Way is Up, based in the Maureen Cope Community Hall, were honoured to make their debut at the Asda store.
All That Glitters, said: “We were delighted to perform several original songs at Asda Toryglen over the weekend in celebration of Tickled Pink. Singing Robin’s Message for the first time was a very special moment and well received by customers. We’d like to thank Elizabeth Arbuckle for allowing us this opportunity to support such a worthy cause.”
Asda Toryglen Community Champion, Elizabeth Arbuckle, is leading the store’s fundraising this month.
She said: “We were thrilled to welcome All That Glitters to Asda Toryglen. Their performance was the perfect start to this year’s Tickled Pink campaign.
“From the group’s standout performance to in-store tombola’s, colleagues will be busy raising funds for the charities supported through Tickled Pink to help fund much needed support for those affected by the disease, as well as vital research.
“At Asda Toryglen, we will be proud to be pink!”
