ARMY cadets stood to attention at the checkouts as Asda hosted a fundraising weekend at its Ferring store.

They were on hand to help shoppers pack their bags at the event, which also saw an Army vehicle parked outside the store.

The fundraiser made £2,030 for charity Help for Heroes, one of the supermarket giant’s national charities.

Lisa Clack, community champion at Asda Ferring, said the fundraising weekend had been ‘amazing’.

“The atmosphere in store was amazing, with the Worthing no.9 cadets bag-packing and helping customers with their shopping,” she added.

“We had a one-tonne Land Rover, fondly known as ‘the pig’, out at the front of the svtore, creating lots of interest from children and adults of all ages.”

Lisa said the event was helped in no small part by the weekend’s wonderful weather, which saw hundreds of people dig deep to help raise funds for the charity.

Help for Heroes supports veterans and serving personnel who have been wounded or injured, or have become sick, as a result of serving their country.

She added: “We would like to thank the volunteers who helped out all weekend and all our customers who gave so generously.
