Asda elf teams up with Santa in Southport

ASDA elf and community champion, Sharon Gregory Wareing, teamed up with Santa to lay on a special Christmas lunch for 80 local elderly people. Sharon secured a £1,000 grant from the Asda Foundation to pay for Christmas dinner for the senior citizens, as well as decorations, gifts and transport to and from the party for those who needed it.

9 other volunteers joined Sharon to prepare and serve the food, whilst looking after the guests at Holy Trinity church hall. Throughout the afternoon there was also a raffle, some carols from pupils at Holy Trinity Primary School and a gift for each guest.

One of the volunteers was Pauline Morris, who was presented with an Asda Hidden Hero award and gift hamper to thank her for all the great work she does in the community; from looking after elderly neighbours to running the Lord Street In Bloom gardening group, in Southport's Town Center.

Sharon, Asda Southport's community champion, said:- "It was an absolutely fantastic day; everyone is already asking us to come back next year as they enjoyed it so much.  I was just really excited that we could help the elderly people in Southport because sometimes they get overlooked and giving something back means a lot because otherwise they might be on their own. Pauline's got time for everyone and if she doesn't have time she finds it from somewhere. I've worked with her in the community since 2010 and she's the glue that holds the community together. If it wasn't for Pauline there wouldn't be a community; she's an absolute superstar."

The Hidden Heroes campaign is celebrating the hard work; that often goes unrecognised; of the volunteers, carers and fellow Asda colleagues who dedicate their own time and efforts to helping other people.

Supported by grants from the Asda Foundation, its aim is to help spread festive cheer in local communities throughout December, helping to highlight the selfless work of hidden heroes locally; and helping to fund Christmas parties for senior citizens and people who live on their own, to helping local groups who look after the homeless and vulnerable at Christmas time.
