Nominate your cause

ASDA in Wisbech is looking for community groups and local good causes to be nominated for its new Community Life scheme.

The store has £300 in cash to give away to groups every two months and shoppers vote for the cause they feel is most worthy of the money.

But Coral Cox from Asda said they have struggled to get local groups involved and many don’t know about the scheme.

“It has been slow to get off the ground,” she said. “We want to give local causes this money to help them.”

Any local cause can be nominated, from a collection for a particular person who needs something to a charity.

Three causes are chosen every two months and Asda shoppers use tokens to vote for their favourite. The winning cause receives £200 with the runners-up receiving £50 each.
