Last week Paul met with the National coordinator of Asda Community Life Champion's. Asda stores are able to offer:
Meeting space - each store has meeting rooms which are available free of charge at times not used (generally evenings and weekends).
Fund-raise in store - many Asda's have foyer space which can be used for displays, fundraising stalls, etc and are happy for bag-packing, awareness raising, etc.
Tokens - each Asda has a token funding scheme - this will be located in near the front doors - to nominate your project complete the form.
Volunteers - each Asda has a Community Life Champion and part of the role is to volunteer in the community - why not invite your local Asda Champion to join you on patrol.
Your local store may also be able to offer water and lollipops as a donation, please speak with them to see how they can help..
Each Community Life Champion has bee briefed about the work of Street Pastors so a good opener may be that Street Pastors don't run in this town but our project is the local equivalent.
To contact your local store email firstname.lastname@example.org - eg email@example.com . If you have any problems then the national co-ordinator is firstname.lastname@example.org .
