Asda Enniskillen colleagues came together to fundraise for the Asda Tickled Pink campaign, which funds world class research, life-changing support, and vital breast awareness information to help change the future of breast cancer in the UK.

Asda Enniskillen Community Champion, Simon Harron hosted a face painting and fancy dress day in store and colleagues from all departments got involved. Laura Burns, Produce Section Leader at Asda Enniskillen dressed up as the famous ‘Joker’ and she put her artistic skills to the test as she spent the day painting the faces of numerous customers.

As part of a campaign to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Asda Tickled Pink is on a mission to show NI customers how checking their boobs, pecs and chests can be as normal as their Asda shop.

Now in its 26th year, the Asda Tickled Pink campaign aims to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer charities – Breast Cancer Now and CoppaFeel! This year, the focus is to disrupt customers doing their shopping with important reminders that all men and women should become Real Self-Checkers – this includes pink till receipts, point of sale with real case studies, signs and symptoms leaflets, and a large car park banner.

The annual campaign is the longest running UK charity partnership and over the past 26 years has raised over £77million to date.

Simon Harron, Community Champion at Asda Enniskillen, said:“We had a great morning getting involved in the Asda Tickled Pink campaign!

“It is so important to raise awareness for such a worthy cause, and we had such a laugh. Lots of kids dressed up and they were keen to get their faces painted, I even got mine painted as I didn’t want to miss out on the fun.This is such an important cause, we always like to do our bit.’’
