Kind-hearted shoppers support Mencap service users

Leamington Editorial 10th Mar, 2017   0

PEOPLE with learning disabilities will be enjoying even more fun and games together thanks to a donation from Asda in Leamington.

The supermarket has handed over a cheque for £200 to Heart of England Mencap through its green token scheme, where shoppers are invited to show their support for local good causes.

The money is being spent on board games, puzzles and art resources for two services run by HofE Mencap – the day activity group Pathway, based in Warwick and the complex needs day service Fordsfield in Leamington.

Asda community champion Jo Butler said: “Hearing about all of the wonderful activities they do was just fantastic, and we are very happy to have supported them through our ‘Your Community Counts’ green token scheme.”




And Mencap’s fundraising manager Cath Errington added: “We want to say a big thank you to Jo, Asda and all of the shoppers who supported us through the green token scheme.”

* ASDA in Leamington is keen to hear from charities for its ‘Your Community Counts’ green token scheme.


The Asda Foundation has helped many local charities and groups in the past, donating £1 million a year to local good causes throughout the UK.

Any charity or group wanting to appear on the green token scheme can nominate at storelocator.asda.com/store/leamington-spa or pick up a nomination card from the community board in the Chesterton Drive store.
