4 years ago Sarah Gough, Alfie’s Mum approached ASDA for a donation towards the purchase of Toys and working with ASDA’s Community involvement local lead Kay Smith of ASDA they came up with the idea that ASDA will donate a Television to be raffled in the store.
This year Ryan Day who is now the lead at Asda Broadstairs came up with the idea of donating an Ipad. Shoppers flocked to purchase raffle tickets and the response was overwhelming as always showing that the Christmas spirit is really alive in Broadstairs.

Dean Gough, Alfie’s Father said “After spending Christmas as a family on the ward in 2009 with Alfie we unfortunately learned first hand that this was to be our last Christmas together. We are well aware that many more families will be faced with this situation. This inspired us to dedicate one of the charity objectives to ensure that every Christmas is extra special for those on the ward. With support from companies like ASDA it only requires our time to make this a successful annual event. We will continue to do this every year and Thank you to all those people who took the time to come and speak with us and purchase tickets from us over the weekend.”
