Waitrose Community Matters programme supports Anchor House

22nd April 2013

For the past five years, Waitrose have been running a programme called ‘Community Matters’ where each branch chooses three local good causes to support a month, and in November 2012 Anchor House was one of the lucky few chosen.

The scheme works by giving customers a token at the checkout which they can place in the charity box of their choice, and at the end of the month Waitrose splits a donation of £1000 between three charities according to how many tokens they received.

As an added bonus, Waitrose pledged to triple charitable donations this Christmas season instead of spending extra money on advertising. As a result, we are delighted to report a total donation of £990, which will be collected from the Stratford branch of Waitrose on Friday 26th April by Anchor House Community Fundraiser Stephen Watson and two residents.
