VOLUNTEERS from Leeds-based supermarket Asda delivered the goods as they helped keep a stretch of canal walkway free of litter.

More than 100 members of staff at Asda House worked alongside Leeds City Council’s environmental crews on the clean-up of paths from Armley Mills Museum to Thwaite Mills in Stourton.

Asda’s chief compliance officer, Rebecca Lythe, said: “This has been a great opportunity to do something as a team but also give something back to the community and our home city. We spend a lot of time in the office or in our stores and depots, so to go outdoors for a few hours and see that we’ve made a difference to our area is fantastic.”

Coun Mark Dobson thanked the volunteers for their support.
