Joy, our Community Life Champion at Asda Inverness, has been out and about spreading festive cheer in the Highlands and Islands as one of our #becauseitschristmas elves.
Joy donned her “happy to elf” costume and joined home shopping driver Tony on the 200-mile round trip to the Isle of Skye to say thank you to some of their regular customers.
Over the next four weeks Asda elves from every one of our stores across the country will be creating Christmas magic and arranging special surprises for people and good causes in their local communities. Read more here.
Joy and Tony got a great reaction on their travels – with customers asking them if they can have all their home shopping delivered by elves in the run-up to Christmas!
“Because we were dressed as elves we had people going past tooting their horns,” said Joy. “There were smiles all day – it was a complete feelgood day. Everyone was genuinely pleased to see us!”
We’ve been delivering to Skye from the Asda store in Inverness since 2013 after locals launched a Facebook campaign to bring home shopping to the island and help them save money.
Joy said: “I am so lucky that Asda Inverness covers the Highlands right up to Skye. Such amazing beautiful scenery on my doorstep.”Read more
