Help the heroes

A SUPERMARKET giant is calling on volunteers to give up some of their spare time to help a soldiers’ charity.

Following the success of fundraising days at ASDA in last year, the stores in Hartlepool and Peterlee are carrying out a similar campaign in aid of Help for Heroes.

The events will take place on May 12 and 13.

A spokesman for Asda said: “Our wonderful volunteers had a great time and enjoyed themselves knowing they have given a small amount of their time for our heroes.”

Volunteers will be collecting donations and selling merchandise at over 500 Asda stores throughout the UK.
