Under the scheme, customers nominate a charity by donating a shopping token and the charities with the three highest numbers of tokens receive a donation. Jack’s Appeal with Cardiac Risk in the Young was chosen at the Asda store in Blackwood. The fund provides free cardiac screenings to young people between the ages of 14 and 35 at Oakdale Surgery and was set up by June Thomas in memory of her son Jack, who passed away of an undiagnosed heart condition in 2012 at just 15 years old. The amount usually given for Asda’s charity scheme is £500 but was doubled to celebrate the store’s anniversary.
