Banana Chat – meet Lorraine from Asda

This week’s Banana Chat is with our inspirational person of the week – Lorraine, who works for Asda in Shoebury as part of their Community Team working with Banana Crumble to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis alongside other charities and good causes.

Hello, My name is Loraine. I work at The Asda in Shoebury, in Essex. I am part of the community team and spend a lot of time helping local charities on behalf of Asda. I organise in-store events helping charities to raise funds and also get involved within the local community. The Shoebury ASDA has helped Banana Crumble raise funds for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust by donating prizes for raffles and allowing them to run an in-store tombola event which they did last week. We are also looking forward to helping them by donating other items for their upcoming Banana Crumb-Ball which on this occasion is supporting the local charity The Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association to raise much needed funds.
