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; “Being supported by Waitrose in the local community is really important for us”.

“This money will go towards equipment in Sefton, Merseyside and allows us to get our message out there and reach people that we would not normally be able to reach”.

“We don’t receive any government funding so initiatives like this really are vital in allowing us to carry on the work we do.”
