Asda Stars Raise £988!

The “Asda Stars” Midnight Walk team were out in force again this year and have raised £988 for St Teresa’s Hospice.

Community Champion Louise Gibson and Store Manager Steve White present St Teresa’s Hospice with a cheque for £988!

Colleagues and managers from the Whinbush Way store in Darlington have taken part in the last three years, having adopted St Teresa’s as one of their favourite charities since 2002.

The 8-strong team that took part this year, led by store Community Champion Louise Gibson, raised funds through team sponsorship and a bucket collection in store. Their efforts were then boosted through matched funding from the Asda Foundation.

The total raised by the store through their participation in the Midnight Walk alone is now £3700.34!

Louise commented: “I’m proud of my colleagues for achieving so much for St Teresa’s. We always have fun taking part in the Midnight Walk, even in the rain! Some of the team travel from as far as Cleveland to take part, returning home in the early hours of the morning”.

The store team have taken part in a variety of fundraising activities over the years and have helped by donating prizes for raffles and allowing bag packs and collections. This year they also helped by donating bacon and buns for the well-deserved breakfast rolls given to the Midnight Walkers!

Louise visited the Hospice with some of her colleagues recently as part of Asda’s 50th birthday, sharing cakes with Day Hospice patients and volunteers.

Over £12,000 has so far been raised from the Midnight Walk 2015, with more to come.
