For the whole of December, the Wandle Trust is one of three recipients of the Wandsworth Waitrose monthly Community Matters initiative (together with Wandsworth Carers’ Centre and the Polka Theatre):
Since its launch in 2008, Waitrose’s Community Matters initiative has donated over £3 million to a wide range of charities and community groups.
This unique scheme gives each branch £1,000 to share out between three local good causes each month – such as welfare organisations, community groups, schools or local divisions of national charities.
Customers vote for their preferred cause using a green token each time they shop and the money each cause is given is directly proportional to the tokens they receive.
So please, if you’re going Christmas shopping, visit Waitrose in the Southside Centre and give our share a much-needed boost. There is no minimum spend to get a token, and you may even be given more than one!
Thank you so much for your support!
