Asda donates £200 to hospice after vote
ASDA customers have proved there is more to the weekly shop than milk and bread – by supporting good causes while hitting supermarket aisles.
Cornwall Hospice Care's Mount Edgcumbe Hospice, St Austell, scooped £200, thanks to members of the public and the supermarket in Cromwell Road.
During June and July the public nominated the causes as part of the store's Community Life campaign.
Shoppers then used the green tokens issued to them at the check-out to vote for the nominee they felt deserved the cash the most.

Cornwall Hospice Care received the most green tokens closely followed by Sally's Cat Rescue and Home Farm Trust, which supports people with learning disabilities, which each received a £50 donation.
Tim Dyke, Asda's community champion, said: "It is great to have the opportunity to support a variety of charities. Mount Edgcumbe Hospice was really, really grateful for the £200."
"As part of the Asda's Community Life campaign, launched earlier this year, the store is keen to support as many local charities, organisations and events that contribute to the community, in whatever way possible," he added.
The campaign is to continue.
