Upminster Waitrose celebrates nine years of supporting community charities
PUBLISHED: 12:00 11 October 2018
Since opening in 2009 the Waitrose in St Mary’s Lane has donated more than £112,000 to around 330 charities, support groups and volunteer-run organisations.
Waitrose’s Community Matters’ green token scheme has become iconic among shoppers.
During the scheme’s birthday month this October, the Upminster shop will showcase the Waitrose Isolation Campaign with The Campion School, the 19th Romford Scout Group and the Essex After School Clubs as its three local causes.
Ken McDonald, partner and branch manager, said: “It’s fantastic to celebrate our Community Matters scheme by highlighting three of Havering’s wonderful charities and community groups in our October vote.
“We’re very proud to be able to play our part in the local community and support those causes that matter most to local people.
“We look forward to helping many more in the coming years.”
