Stepping Stones Run the Great North Run

Guide DogsNext weekend sees Stepping Stones Marketing take on the Great North Run in Newcastle. Forget the ice bucket challenge this is a real challenge!!

Director Dawn James together with son Matthew travel to the North East to take on the iconic run with a back-up team providing transport, motivational support, physiotherapy services and a shoulder to lean (cry on) at the end!

We are raising monies for Guide Dogs for the Blind  (a charity often forgotten about nowadays) who undertake incredible work. Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind, which means we need to train more guide dog puppies. Donations ensure that a guide dog puppy can receive traininJustGiving Homeg – from those tentative first days with a puppy walker through to more advanced training at guide dog school and eventually matching them with the right owner. All your donations will play a vital part in giving independence and freedom to blind and partially sighted people.

300 new Asda stores – where will they go and do we really need them?

About time the planners in the UK asked some importanmt questions when Asda thinks that we need another 300 stores?

The likes of Lidl and Aldi are slowly bringing the big 4 too a halt, but Asda carries on regardless. Does anyone, live more than 10 minutes from a major supermarket? We don’t need an Asda everywhere especially when there are other stores already available.

The argument is that they will bring more jobs, well they don’t because small independent butchers, newsagents, toy shops, grocers etc. all close and the jobs are lost!

Let me know if you really need a new Asda store in your life! I certainly don’t!
