Staff from Asda spruce up The Lemarie Centre in Watford to mark 50th anniversary
A charity centre in Watford has been given a makeover by Asda staff as part of a community initiative to mark its 50th anniversary.
The Lemarie Centre plays host to Watford Mencap Children’s Centre, Wheelchair Dance Sport Association, The Stroke Association and Watford and District MSS.
Staff from 10 North West London stores put their decorating skills to the test by sprucing up the centre, including Watford Mencap’s SoftPlay Room, which provides an environment to motivate children and young adults to play, learn and explore.
Richard Henery, store manager at Asda Watford, said: "The Lemarie Centre has been on our door step for over 25 years and we wanted to show them that we really value the work they do.
"In honour of its 50th anniversary, we wanted to redecorate the building. With the hard work and support of the Asda Foundation, we brought the centre back to life and everyone had a great time in the process."
Mark Evans, centre manager, added: "We are so grateful for their hard work and determination on this project, which has given the centre a new lease of life. Here’s to the next 50 years."
