ASDA Peterhead customers have supported a local social enterprise through the store’s Community Life initiative

Peterhead Projects collected the most green tokens during February and was presented with a cheque for £200.

Customers are encouraged to nominate local causes in-store with the successful recipients receiving a donation from the ASDA Foundation.

Other recent benefactors include Cancer Research Peterhead, Peterhead Aged & Infirmed, Eileidh’s Journey, Anna Ritchie Primary School, Aberdeenshire Young Carers, Joseph Storehouse, Rubislaw Ward Aberdeen Maternity, Longside Explorers, Music in Hospitals, Dales Park School Outdoor Classroom and the Eden Park Project.

Ken Duncan of Peterhead Projects said: “I would like to thank all the customers of ASDA for supporting our social enterprise and for this very generous donation from the ASDA Foundation. The money will be used to launch a new community initiative in the coming weeks – so watch this space.”

Store manager Grant McHardy added: “The Community Life initiative supported by the ASDA Foundation is a great way for customers to nominate and support local groups and activities. Forms are available in-store and I would encourage anyone involved with a group to pop in and get nominating.”
