Shoppers are given a green charity token each time they make a purchase in Asda and last month one of the charity options was Peterborough and District Samaritans.

As a result of shoppers’ generosity, a Peterborough branch volunteer yesterday, Thursday July 20, collected a cheque for £200 from store staff.

Carol Crosbie, Director of Peterborough and District Samaritans, said “Out grateful thanks to ASDA for the generous cheque of £200.
