Tracy Morris, Asda Rushden community champion, said: “We are so excited Green Token Giving is back online and really proud to be able to continually support the local charity groups in our area. At Asda, we’re always thrilled when customers chosen good causes benefit from these vital funding boosts and we get to raise awareness of what they do.”
