If you shop at Waitrose, you'll be familiar with their 'Community Matters' initiative. After paying for your shopping, you receive a token which you drop into the slot of whichever one of three local good causes you'd most like to support. The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000 between 3 local good causes. Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has donated £14 million to local charities.
Schoolreaders is delighted to have become a beneficiary of the scheme. So far we have received more than £2,000 from 5 branch collections... so please remember to support the scheme when you shop at Waitrose - it's making a real difference!
