An Asda guess-the-savings game in Corby proved to be a winner for the town’s Lakelands Hospice.

The store’s first ever Asda price guarantee roadshow was held over three days and customers were invited to guess how much they could save by taking advantage of the company’s price guarantee campaign.

The total savings from the three days was multiplied and the final sum, £1065.61, was donated to the hospice in Butland Road.

General manager at the Corby store, Gary Brown, said: “The roadshow was a fun way to show our customers that we are serious about our price guarantee.

“By raising money for Lakelands Hospice at the same time, we ensured that this saving went to a great cause, one which provides essential and first-class support to the people of Corby.”

Paul Marlow, fundraising manager at Lakelands, said: “This was a fantastic amount for Asda to donate to us and we are extremely grateful for their support. The money raised will help us continue to provide the best care for our patients and their families.”
