CHARITIES in Sheffield are to receive a cash windfall worth thousands thanks to a supermarket roadshow.

The Asda Price Guarantee Roadshow was in Barker’s Pool from last Friday until yesterday, when shoppers were invited to guess the savings on products bought at the store.

The event happened on a special stage, where five contestants at a time were shown a series of random items, then asked to guess the savings to be made at Asda.

All the results across four days will now be added up, multiplied, and donated to charities in Sheffield.

Tom McCullion, manager of the Asda supermarket at Handsworth, said: “The roadshow was a fun way to show our customers we’re serious about our price guarantee.

“This saving also goes to fantastic local causes.”
