Who knew that a little plastic disc that you receive at the end of your shop could make such a difference in peoples lives.

Well that is exactly what will happen when you visit Waitrose, Edinburgh. 

At the end of your shop in branch, you’ll receive a token to place in a box of the good cause you’d most like to support. The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. 

By placing a token in the Community Matters box at your local branch you’re helping your community.

Steven Poole, Regional Development Manager for British Wireless said; “We don’t receive any government funding so being supported in this kind of way really does help us continue to change lives in the Edinburgh area”.
