Puppy love Journal 11 NORTH LEEDS HEADROW MANJIT’S A KNOCKOUT CONVENIENCE GLOUCESTER BARTON STREET Taekwondo star Manjit Kalcutt is on top of the world after beating off competition from 2,000 contenders to be crowned the Action International Martial Arts Association World Champion! Gloucester Barton Street Local colleague Manjit, who has been practising the sport for 15 years, defeated competitors from ten countries en route to clinching first prize at the finale in Swindon. “We are all amazingly proud of Manjit’s achievements. Despite all of her success, she hasn’t changed one bit!” said Graham Bocking. HAYWARDS HEATH Talented Paul Milton’s portrait of a World War Two veteran is being showcased in Wings Military Museum in Balcombe. The picture was drawn to support a charity event and reflects the life of Harry Hacker, who was with RAF Bomber Command. Paul’s work is also on display instore as he created a hand-drawn mural for the colleague restaurant. WEST HOVE Ten-year-old Natasha Puchnarewicz bagged herself a £50 gift card and an Active Kids pack for her friends at Goldstone Primary School after she won West Hove’s ‘Bag for Life’ competition. Natasha’s creative effort was picked from more than 120 entries and her winning design was printed on 2,000 canvas bags for customers at the store. Thirty-seven colleagues from the London Convenience Leadership Team gave a much-needed lick of paint to the residential unit at Bradbury House, which provides shelter and support for vulnerable homeless women. The team was inspired to take on the mission as part of the Business in the Community campaign, which helps to engage businesses with local charities. “The staff there were really appreciative of our efforts,” said Ian Keeble. “We are now looking at different ways of supporting others in the community.” Colleagues were visited by some special canine friends when the Leeds and District Guide Dogs for the Blind Association presented them with a certificate thanking the team for helping them to collect £543 instore. “We’ve always had a close relationship with the charity and we were delighted to once again support our local branch,” said Graham Chawner. “It’s wonderful to see how generous our customers have been for this worthy cause. And we had a lovely letter thanking us and telling us how welcome colleagues made the charity’s volunteers feel over the two collection days.” CONVENIENCE LEADERSHIP TEAM ZONE 5 THE JOURNAL WANTS YOU!
