Sheltered Shopping


Each year, the Asda store in town invites elderly residents from local care homes in for a special Christmas event.


Our students then come along to help support the visitors as part of the sheltered shopping scheme. They help the senior citizens to buy gifts and cards for carers or family members and decorations for their rooms, as well as getting together to enjoy Christmas treats in the Asda cafe.


The feedback our students received was incredible and we are so proud of them for being part of this lovely event, which gained national recognition on the Asda Website.
