Little girl's birthday wish comes true as she becomes Asda's 'newest recruit'
Asda has a new recruit thanks to three-year-old Ella Ball, who chose to spend her birthday helping store colleagues alongside her mum. The young 'employee' only wanted three things for her birthday, reports LancsLive : Paw Patrol toys, a party with her friends and a trip to her local Asda in Lancashire.
And she did so in style, too, wearing her very own green uniform. Mum Debbie, who has worked at the Rawtenstall store since last July, says Ella just wants to be like her mummy. Her mini-me daughter even got to do a pretend shop and scan some of the items herself.
Debbie said: “I asked what she wanted to do for her birthday and she said, ‘go to Asda’. Every time she comes into store everyone makes a fuss of her – and she loves it!
"She loves the shopping, she loves helping – she’ll put things back on the shelves if she sees them in the wrong place – and she likes the attention everyone gives her.” Ella has become a familiar face at the store and Debbie says her fellow colleagues are always so welcoming of her daughter.
Service colleague Debbie said: “The top she’s got is one of my old ones. It’s got a hole in it, so one of my colleagues, Elizabeth Johnstone, made it into one that Ella could wear. She always wants to come in. Yesterday when I was coming to work I had to leave her kicking and screaming at the door.
"She was only on the till for about five minutes but she loved it!”
