Cumnock's Asda is getting into the Mother's Day spirit by celebrating mother and daughter trio, Marna McLellan, Abbie Wilson and Charlie Wilson who work at the store together.

With over 21 years of service between them, 44-year-old pizza counter and bakery colleague, Marna, worked in Asda Ayr for three years before clocking up 12 years of service at Asda Cumnock.

Daughter Charlie, 24, also started off at the Asda Ayr store before transferring to Asda Cumnock five years ago where she works as a markdown colleague four nights a week.

17-year-old Abbie was the most recent addition to the Asda Cumnock family, following in her mum and sister’s footsteps working as an ambient colleague in the evenings.

Commenting on what it’s like to work with her two daughters, Marna said: “We all love working at Asda, it’s a family-friendly company who always look out for their staff. I’m proud to be able to work with my two daughters and we really enjoy it!

“I’m so proud of my daughters for everything they have done, and it’s extra special that I get to work with them as well. Although we don’t see each other often on our shifts, it’s always comforting when we do and sometimes we can have lunch together which is great.”

Charlie took a year out of studying to work at Asda and decided it was the job for her.

She added: "It’s nice to work with your close relatives but we have built a family within the store as well.

“I only expected to take a year out of studying to work at Asda and then go back but I enjoyed it so much I gave up my studies and decided to stay here. I know I’ll be able to have a good career at Asda, just like my mum."

School pupil, Abbie added: "When the role was advertised, I knew I had to apply as my mum and sister always said how much of a great place it is to work.

“I’m still in school, with the hopes of going to college to be a nursery teacher in the future. However, I see myself working at Asda for a good while.

“Working with Charlie and my mum is great because I always have someone to turn to and ask for help if I ever need it. We have such a lovely team who really care too.”
