Asda charity drive

Jonathan Hughes

Asda Distribution Centre at Portbury, recently teamed up with Body Management Clevedon to mark the Queen’s jubilee and raise money for the Everyman Charity.

Shaun Partridge, Asda’s Community Life Champion sold raffle tickets to colleagues at the depot, with the winner of the raffle receiving a full day’s pampering kindly donated by Jonathan Hughes, the General Manager of the Clevedon based club.

Shaun comments: “We wanted to do something different for the jubilee, and at the same time raise some money for charity, and Body Management were extremely generous with the donation of this prize.

“We are also pleased to be linking up with a local business, as part of the initiative to make Asda a bigger part of the local community, and also to use their expertise to help promote all the benefits of a healthy lifestyle to our colleagues. As the club is open to anyone to use, we hope that our colleagues who live locally will take advantage of what they have to offer.”

The lucky ticket, drawn by Jonathan, was held by Asda receptionist Kay Norman, who couldn’t believe the good news when she was told that she was going to be treated like a Queen for the day.

Jonathan said that “Kay will be able to use all the facilities at the club, from the Zen Garden, the Sauna and Steam Room, through to the gym equipment if she wants to, as well as receiving a treatment of her choice from one of our beauticians, and enjoying a meal in our Health Café at the end of her special day.”
