Waitrose’s, Community Matters scheme was launched in 2008 and  has donated over £3 million to a wide range of charities and community groups. Each branch receives funds each month to share out between three local good causes . Customers vote  using a green token each time they shop and the money each cause is given is directly proportional to the tokens they receive. 

Charlie’s Charity was one of the three charity choices for shoppers in Waitrose, Marlborough during January  and Jane Lamb, was delighted to recieve £557.00 .
