A limo might be the most popular method of transport when it comes to travelling to the school prom in style but James Corker had a much better way to turn heads – he arrived for his prom night in an Asda lorry!
James’s school friends burst into applause when the lorry turned up outside The Cavendish High School Academy in Runcorn.
James, who is 19 and has severe autism, is Asda lorry mad. He’s been a regular visitor at our Warrington depot for the past three years. Our colleagues look forward to him popping in to look at the vehicles and help out – so when they heard his school prom was coming up they decided there was only one way for him to get there!
Love the song from our latest Pocket Tap TV adverts? It’s a track called ‘Oh My Love’ by American band The Score.
The duo from New York performed on Tuesday night in Manchester – streamed live on Periscope – and loads of fans tuned it to see them play a few of their songs including the catchy pocket-tapping tune ‘Oh My Love’!
You can watch it here:
During the live session, Eddie and Edan answered questions from fans and Asda customers. They told us how they met, what touring the UK has been like, and how they came to be the sound of our new Pocket Tap TV adverts.
The song is currently number 26 in the iTunes charts – and we’d love to see it climb even further – you can download ‘Oh My Love’ here.
When we let Facebook users know our Cake My Day van was going to be visiting County Durham lots of people nominated young mum Jade Pateman for a special surprise.
Jade has been diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer at the age of just 21 – but her mum Yvonne told us she’s proud of the way Jade is staying positive and is determined to make the most of every moment with her two-year-old son Oscar.
Yvonne said: “Even though she is currently receiving extensive chemotherapy she is staying very positive and trying to raise awareness of this horrible disease and how it can be detected earlier.”
